Engine Compartment Detailing

Page 3


With the fan and shroud assembly out of the car I prepared for the worst. Having heard all of the horror stories of beating the the unit into submission - I was pleasantly surprised.

A few taps on the bolt studs around the shroud and the alternator slipped right out. This was courtesy of the last person working on it that put some anti-seize  on the flange.

With the fan and shroud separated, I turned the alternator over and sprayed some WD-40 on the shaft.

A good tug on the fan and it came off without a fight. I taped the woodruff key to the shaft to keep from losing it.

The fan looked pretty bad but was in fine mechanical condition. It would just need to be cleaned up before painting.

The shroud was in basically the same shape. I used a Scotch Brite pad on it to smooth it out and take off the caked on stuff.

I did the same with the fan paying close attention to the blade areas.
