Fan Hub thinks its a chicken,layed these little steel eggs for me...

Recommended Posts

Ok. Seriously.2006 CX AC 460. Fan hub bearings started flying out on me on an overnight job at steel mill,took unit off the job back to the shop,removed fan hub assembly.Next morning call local dealer for new part availability ,whilewaiting to hear from them i dissassembled the unit, finally decided to take hub to local machine shop to put new bearings in. As i call back the dealer to see what they were up to they tell me they had no hub available til June...?Total repair for rebuilding the hub was 170$. Not sure what a new one would have cost but getting a replacement unit was'nt even a option ... none available...anywhere in eastern North America...Is it that rebuilding the hub is what everyone does and i was just slow to catch on or what. Had the bearings spun on the hub i may not have been able to have it rebuilt...and then i gues i would have been calling for a used one left and right...?Engine has 33000Hours,hub might be original, sould i have replaced the bearings as preventive maintenance..?

Are you talking about a Horton fan?

If it's a Behr electric clutch, I had the same problem on mine. Dealer told me you couldn't rebuild it. Had to buy the whole bearing assembly and seems like they wanted like $650 or $700? I can't remember now but I took it apart like you did and went and found bearings. Had it going the same day for around $20 if I remember right. I think there was one available at that time though.
