    Can't find a good clutch fan for my 65 Dart w/273. The original part number is 2536675.
    This has the smaller 5 1/2" diameter body, not the 7 1/4" most after market units have.
    If anyone has a good used one sitting around , I'd appreciate a pm and price.
    Thanks

      I know summit makes a smaller fan clutch but you might need to move your radiator core forward, just measure and see.

        Why do you want a clutch fan? Trying to get 0.05 mpg better milage? That's the only thing a clutch fan does in the cooling system. It does not help with cooling at all.

            Here is the OE 2536 675 clutch unit next to the Hayden 2947 that mopardude318 suggested... I had to use the 2947 Hayden when I installed the thicker Aluminum Radiator...
            All I can say is the New Hayden 2947 has worked Very Well !!!
            Oh, Let me add, Yes Dana67Dart you would have lost the bet !!! :)
            Also like pishta's 65 Parts book photo that shows the 2 piece metal Fan Shroud part #'s

                I just went through this. The car (‘64 Valiant 2743/4spd) had a fan clutch on it when I bought it. I changed to an aluminum radiator and the brackets pushed it closer to the engine. I had to use the 2947 clutch to get it to fit. Then the fan was clipping the upper hose. The problem was the upper hose is more centered then the stock radiator. I ended up getting a flex a lite #6717 17in fan. That’s a fan clutch fan. One other thing... you need to run the spacer on the water pump. Make sure the spacer isn’t too long. I had the file mine down, as it was causing mine to wobble because, I couldn’t tighten it down squarely.
