Viscous fan clutch for TB45E wanted

Post by Kalahari Safari » 12 Oct 2016 17:38

Hi all,

Anybody with a spare fan clutch for my TB45E or access to a part to send over to Gaborone.
My bearing seized up and the fan is turning at engine speed and annoyingly keeps the revs from dropping when releasing the loud pedal at gear changes.

Need a replacement asap here in Gaborone.

Thanks guys for scanning your shed :wink:

Walter, Graham's is a good number to store for emergencies.

Graham is one of the two mechanics in the country who actually KNOW the Patrol.

If there are issues, I have an old one (in not so good) nick lying around. Still servicable, but not great.

I'd recommend getting a new one from Graham in any case. But it is a bit of a pricey part... :/

Hi Walter

We import and sell Terrain Tamer parts in South Africa. We are still starting up and accumulating stock, but I have fans and viscus couplings available. Our price for the blades is R640 excl. VAT. The price for the viscous is R890 excl. VAT. Please feel free to contact me at sales@terrainparts.co.za. Our website should be up and running in the next month.

PS. Thanks Thinus for the call.
