I've just broken a fin off the plastic viscous fan after something jumped into it during an off road day.
I would either like to replace the fan (as its now unbablanced) with a second hand one - has anyone got one please?. Alternatively I have a kenlowe fan, but am not keen on using the themostat sensor that goes under a rad hose as it no longer has the special rubber bridge piece and have heard they can leak and cause more problems.
On the thermostat housing I have a sensor (3/8 BSP i think) which isn't connected to anything (the coolant temperature sensor for the dash gauge is elsewhere). I don't know what this unused sensor is but wondered if it can be replaced with a electric fan switch. If so - does anyone know of any that fit and work at the right temp? Its a 3/8bsp but adapters to change size to 1/4 bsp are available.
Any thoughts or offers of spare fan appreciated
Its a 2.8 N/a diesel in a landrover, which is why something was loose to jump off in the engine bay into the fan!
