I've just been told that there were problems with fan blades on some Studies. Does anyone know about this? I'm looking for a replacement and I don't want to get another if it's going to be a problem as well.

Why do you have two posts for the same issue? You can only get help if you read the responses people give you.

As our cars get older, the risk of fan blade failure increases. Just ask the Model T guys (I have a 1926 fan blade that is cracked 3/4 of it's width hanging on the wall now). Stress cracks form at a rivet and over time it works it's way across the blade. If your lucky, you catch it in time....if not a nice dent in the hood or fenderwell results....or even worse, an injury if your working under the hood.

I do read the responses. I should remove one.

Someone has a fan blade for a '61-66. Does anyone know if that will work with my car?

As noted above, there were a number of possible fans for V8 engines, depending on whether the car had a viscous coupling, air conditioning, etc. I have a used 4-blade fan (presumably 1556168) from a 64 289. This is the standard unit, used without any extras. You can have it for the postage. That said, if Bob Kapteyn has a new one that would fit, that would be a better choice.

I'd delete one but don't know how.
