Default Re: Fan Movement

Vince Falter at his most excellent FordGarage site references problems with reproduction water pump shafts including: wrong taper, TWO tapers, taper stick through before nut fully clinches fan.

ALSO issues with the fan hubs including female similar to above.


Early repro two blade cast aluminum fans are noted to issues in the hobby as the fan was die cast aluminum, but the tapered shaft hole not machined or machined incorrectly. New cast fan blades have this problem solved.

Some have gotten past the issues by putting an additional washer under the fan and torquing the heck out of it. Maybe not so much solving the issue as "getting past."

Some check out seems in order...
