MattNall...I stand corrected and thanks for the link on the electric fans and alternators. It makes sense now

My apologies here. I guess one of the problems with aging is that the mind sometimes fails to function perfectly at all times.

In my effort to inject a possible solution for a topic being discussed, my mind completely overlooked a major component (Charging system) that is also operated by the fan belt.

I guess the only logical explanation for this would be "Brain Fart".

On the other hand, not remembering prior discussions from many years ago on the fan subject appears to have stirred up a hornets nest of controversy.

Well, all I can say about that is at least someone out there is paying attention.winking smiley

I've got a 64 A/C 110 with an exploded fan. Only one in my experience. I'll have to examine the fan closely. I just assumed the fan had something dropped on or into it. It took out the top shroud also. Thanks for the info Ken.

o, about 25 years ago I had a idea about your fan idea, on the oil cooler inspection tin , took 2 longer bolts and put light compressing springs on top, playing around with tension , trying to have the flap open at 2500 to 3000 rpm , well that idea DID NOT WORK , we need the mag fan. motor got really warm fast. could not wait to get home and seal and bolt it done tight. I am thinking GM spent much time on this. al

Pictures of the fan please. Especially the darker areas, the light colored area is where it finally broke.

After cleanup/blasting, would a dye penetrant work to identify areas of sub-surface corrosion?

Ken is right, if the vanes are separating, discard the fan. There are plenty more in good shape. Anything that looks like termites burrowing in the magnesium is bad news.

Generally in magnesium it will be quite obvious if there is any corrosion or cracks. No need for the dye penetrate method.
