Closest reproduction fan clutch on the market that fits the original and reproduction C9ZE-E 7 blade power fan. Hayden fan clutch with an overall height of 2.69 inches. Similar design as originals, with thermal activated clutch. Overall diameter is 7.25 inches. The C9ZE-E 7 blade clutch fans were installed on 1969-70 Mercury Cougar and Ford Mustangs as well as 1969 Torino, Cyclone, Ranchero with 428CJ engines.
The air temperature coming through the radiator is sensed by the bi-metal thermal spring on the front of the thermal fan clutch. It expands and contracts with the change in air temperature operating a valve inside of the clutch. When cold, the silicone drive fluid is pumped from the working area to the reservoir. When hot, the valve opens allowing fluid from the reservoir to be transferred to the working area thereby increasing the fan speed. The clutch disengages as the air temperature decreases, closing the valve and allowing the silicone fluid to be pumped back into the reservoir.
A thermal fan clutch is engaged on a cold startup because the fluid drains into the working area when the engine is shut off. The fan clutch will slow down shortly after startup as a result of a pumping action produced by a difference in speed between the shaft and the body of the clutch.
Most models are designed to duplicate original equipment performance. Some Chevrolet/GMC truck models are specifically designed to engage at lower temperatures than the original equipment parts that they replace.
