Re: Heat Issues - New to me 70 Chevelle
So I feel a bit dumb. lol I got the fan in today.....
I went out and got some 5/16-18X3/4 Hex Flange Bolts. I read somewhere (and wrote it down) that I needed 5/16-18X5/8 flange bolts but my local shop didn't have 5/8", they only had 3/4". First, are these the bolts to connect the fan clutch to the fan? If so, what do I use to bolt the fan clutch to the water pump pulley?
Right now, my flex fan has a spacer and connects right to the pulley. From what I can tell, now its the fan clutch that will connect to the pulley so that means the bolts I have (that were used with the spacer and flex fan) won't work, they would be too long. Does anyone know what size bolts I need for this or is that what the bolts above are for? And if that's the case, what size bolts would I need to connect the fan to the fan clutch?
And last, I assume the numbers (and part # sticker) on the fan face the engine, not the radiator...correct? It seems the fan clutch fits on the fan better this way (the clutch has a little more clearance from the fan fins).
