Need Fan Hub

Postby Mike D » Mon Jul 19, 2004 9:41 am

I need a fan hub for my 1948 Cub, serial # 32176. The pulley that spins the generater seems to have broken away from the hub. I didn't get a chance to remove the hood to get a good look at it yet. I thought about trying to weld it back in place but don't know if I could ever get it back to "straight" if you know what I mean. Any ideas on buying a used fan hub? Anyone have one for sale? Thanks, Mike

It sounds like nobody has ever oiled the fan hub from your description.

Here is a bunch of used ones for sale. http://www.tmtractor.com/co/co_001.htm

Mike,

Withhold your decision until you can examine the pulley closely. I recently had one separate and was able to put the loose half back on and tack weld it. You may be able to put it back together in its' original position where it will automatically be straight and run true.

In this case, it came out just as good as original, and the repair didn't really cost anything.

Thanks Johnbron and George for the info. I don't have the hood off yet so I can't see what's wrong/broken. I did notice in the TM Tractor photos in Johnbron's reply that some of the for sale pulleys look like they have been tack welded. That might be my solution as George has suggested. Much appreciated suggestions. Mike
