Just got a six blade fan for some extra cooling efficiency for the day I stop tearing apart the wagon and actually get the motor together again and running. Is this fan meant to be used with a clutch or directly coupled to the water pump pulley? Thanks!

Got any pics of it? I'm not sure if you're supposed to use it with a clutch.

You'd probably be alright to run it without a clutch but I'm no expert. If you find a clutch in the meantime I guess it wouldn't hurt to pick that up as well.

That's interesting, my '59 only has a 4 blade fan.

Yeah, mine is too. But both of our rides are non-a/c though. I shot the seller an email and ask how it was originally connected on his 62 Bonny. Thanks for the response!

Oh, On that list I didn't see the first 4 blade application. All I saw was 59-61 6 blade with fluid clutch. haha thanks

I've got a '62 Grand Prix with AC, I'll see if it has a clutch

Looks like you don't need a clutch with that spacer and the hole pattern. Also get yourself a shroud. The combined airflow should take care of anything you come up against.

That's a different fan and it has an extra blade (7). Probably the one I should have bought, lol.

Yes, '59 Shrouds are very hard to find. I'll probably make my own out of sheetmetal

1960 is the same shroud. If you've only been looking for '59 this might help.
