Default Re: Use of 6 bladed fan

The desire for a fan with more blades is usually from someone with overheating problems. The standard four bladed fan works fine with a system in good condition. As for interchange, Ford used several different versions over the years from crankshaft mounts, generator, mounts and the type with the oil reservoir. Multiblade fans can increase fan noise. The reservoir type typically seize. We made a ballbearing replacement years ago, and C&G shows them now available in their new catalog for the very reasonable $160.
