Sorry to hear that buddy. You take it easy, health is more important than cars. :)

Jasu,
time to start wearing a cycling or mountaineering lid when you're out on the ice, please?
The little ones tend to bounce, whereas older ones (like me) tend to break... :)
.
Anyhow, measured an original fan just now and it's 'just under' 270mm in diameter across the tips of the blades.

I think you'll find that it's time to get the fettling hammer out and restore the radial distance of the fan cowling inlet from the crankshaft nose, as they do suffer from being knocked around.

Ken

Thanks for replies and sympaty. Tired to have a great headache, again, some years went without...

But, still try to hassle with these, some kind of therapy also...


Well, removed a fan from supercharged engine, and tried the new one to that engine. It hits also to the cowling on the other engine, so need to make some measuring...

Fuk hitec, more like KISS -princibles with measuring... That is the new one...

Image
...and this is the older one...

About 4mm longer blades, 8mm larger diameter. Friend asked could this be a fan from AK/Ami, did they had little larger fan, didn't they..?

Yes with the inverted plastic cone on the front that is an ami fam. It was in there to guide the starting handle in the dogs. Because you can't see the fan very well behind the ami grille.

But, it is the smaller one... Bought more than ten years ago, maybe over 20 years, still soft. Couple blades slightly broken, forgot to tight the mounting screw once, still hasn't exploded with rough use...

And don't you think the broken blades may cause vibrations that kill the fan in the end? I have still my orginal fan in the car its still flexible after 37 years in the heat ;-)
