Aftermarket fan assembly

Postby Fordman » Mon Sep 11, 2017 8:49 am

Has anyone had any experience with the new sealed bearing type aftermarket fan assembly? Iam restoring my 52 cub and my fan assembly looks pretty rough. I bought all the gaskets to rebuild the old one but am a little concerned that it will still leak and cause problems. Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks :tractor:

Never dealt with any of the new ones, but as to the old one leaking there should not be a problem unless the bearing is shot. Be sure to oil it according to the manual. If you fill it without following the drain procedure it will coat the tractor to the rear of the fan with an oil mist. I learned by forgetting to drain one once. I once worked on a tractor for an elderly gentleman that the tractor was solid black, starting at the fan and in a cone shape all the way to the rear of the tank and TC. The previos owner had apparently been putting oil in the fan but not following the drain procedure. I pressure washed it before taking it back home and he thought I brought him a different tractor.

I have one in one of my cubs, and it has given me no problems for about 8 or more years. (Knock on wood!!)

I don't have an aftermarket one, but I do have a sealed bearing fan assembly in my numbered series 184. I have not had any difficulty with it.... yet... (probably opening myself up to a new issue by writing this)

I think I saw one listed at Hamiltonbobs For about $80. Was not aware that you needed to drain the older ones before adding new oil. Thanks guys for your input. Since I already have the new gaskets and the bearing seems to be ok, I think I'll go ahead and give the old one a shot. Thanks again.

You can review this post for instructions on lubrication of the cooling fan shaft. viewtopic.php?f=1&t=95820&hilit=cooling+fan+lubrication The idea is not how to drain the oil before filling but how to drain the EXCESS oil AFTER filling.

The filler is a standpipe that once you add oil you turn the filler to the bottom and let the excess oil drain out. There is no seal on the shaft and that keeps the oil below the shaft so it doesn't get slung out. With a little practice you learn how much to add each year without wasting too much.

Hi,
Here is a page from the Cub owner's manual showing how to oil the fan hub, and showing how the hub looks inside. The info is on the right side of the page. :)
