Re: 1968 Fan Clutch Rebuilding; Seeking Recommendation
I am interested in the engineering numbers on both the fan and clutch because I have never seen one on a "J" code Mustang. Just checked the MPC (1975) and it only showed the clutch fan on big block cars. I have seen the clutch fan used on 68 Cougars equipped with a "J" code, and also on the 68 GT 350 Mustangs. Both of these are listed in the MPC, but no mention of an ordinary "J" code Mustang with or without AC. With the AC on and in traffic and at high ambient temps my "J" code heat gauge begins to climb. Only turning off the AC or getting on the open road will cool it down. Never boiled over but appears too hot to ignore. If you have the numbers stamped on the blade and the clutch I would hunt for like parts and use them to solve the problem. I have no idea why this configuration is not listed for an ordinary "J" code Mustang. Any comments are appreciated along with any advice on rebuilding the clutch or images of the clutch used on the 302. The link to adding oil is interesting - are the Mustang/Cougar built the same way?
