    Description

    Reproduction thermal fan clutch that fits 1967 - 68 289 engines, 1968 302/390/427/428CJ engines, and 1969 351W engines, all with original Ford thermal cooling fans. Slightly larger in overall diameter, (still fits fine), and retains the correct spacing from radiator. We know that these will fit Mercury Cougar and Ford Mustangs 1967-69.

    Closest reproduction fan clutch on the market that fits the original and reproduction C8OE-B 7 blade power fan. Hayden fan clutch with an overall height of 2.98 inches. Similar design as originals, with thermal activated clutch. Overall diameter is 7.20 inches. Application for the C8OE-B 7 blade fans include 1968 390-2V, 390-4V, 427-4V, and 428CJ engines, additionally this fan was installed on the 1969 Mercury Cougar and Ford Mustang with S code 390-4V or 390IP engines.

    • Varies the fan speed with temperature of the air behind the radiator.
    • Engaged (high speed) operation provides maximum cooling.
    • Disengaged (low speed) operation provides fuel savings and noise reduction.
    • Greater life expectancy than a non-thermal clutch.
    • Briefly engaged at cold start-up.
    • Engages at about 170° radiator air temperature, (about 30° lower than coolant temperature).
    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.

    • An electric setup "technically" better.
    The fan setup that came with my car was a cheap auto store deal. Great improvement to return to a thermo clutch with the fan intended for my 390 FE. Can praise these clutches enough. I have several years and 6000+ miles on this part and no issues whatsoever.

    Replaced my fan clutch due to approaching Texas summer heat and didn't want to risk overheating, the old one seemed to be fine and probably didn't need to be replaced, but better safe than sorry and I now have a good fan clutch spare. Easy to install, good fit and high quality item, I recommend it and would buy another if necessary.

    Question
    Asked:
    Thank you. Would it also work in a 1969 Torino with a 351W and the 24 inch A/C radiator?
    July 18, 2024 9:18 PM
    Answer
    WCCC Admin Answered:
    I cannot say with 100% certainty that it would, as we do not have a 69 Torino to test it on, but this fan clutch is a direct replacement for most 67-69 Ford/Mercury applications that require a fan clutch.

    Question
    Asked:
    Will this clutch work with the original style C9WE-C seven blade fan used with 1969 351W engines?
    July 18, 2024 6:55 PM
    Answer
    WCCC Admin Answered:

    Yes, this will work for all 67-69 Cougar/Mustang applications that need a fan clutch. This is the closest to factory currently available.

    The heavy duty (Part #:32567) and 428CJ specific versions (Part #:12190 & Part #:10303) of the fan clutches move the fan slightly closer to the radiator, which can cause better cooling, but you need to measure to make sure you have the additional depth needed so the fan does not contact the radiator.

    Why am I being warned about potential exposure to chemicals in motor vehicle parts?


    • Some chemicals in motor vehicle parts are on the Proposition 65 list because they can cause cancer and/or birth defects or other reproductive harm.
    • When purchasing USED or NOS items, we do not know if listed chemicals are present in these products.
    • This product is known to contain the following listed chemicals:
