Thermal Fan Clutch

I am trying to buy the fan for the thermal clutch, but none of the major car parts store have them in my area, except in the flex style. I believe the correct on for a 67 Camaro 350 is a 18" 5 blade. Can anyone help me to locate a place I can purchase one. Thanks

Re: Thermal Fan Clutch

Start with the sites sponsor (see links on every page of the site) , next try Year One, Classic Ind, Ricks, NPD, Steves, Matts, or RPS... Every one carrys them or can get them. If you don't care about having a real factory look there is Summit and Jegs too...

Re: Thermal Fan Clutch

I looked on Steve's and he had them. Don't know if it's the right one, but I'm going to find out. Thanks Dennis.

Jegs and Summit don't sell them, at least not on line or in there catalog. I'll check the sponsors. I thanks you both for the quick responses. I'll keep looking till I find one.

Re: Thermal Fan Clutch

If you are not going for originality you can use a FlexaLite 5718 18" Fan Blade available from Summit/Jegs, its not a Flex Fan... Its a fixed blade fan, I use it on both my 69 Camaro and my 63 Nova

Re: Thermal Fan Clutch

I looked in Jegs and Sumitt, but I don't see any that will fit with the clutch, they are just regular steel blade fans, but I'vd had some over heating problems, so I put a long pump, aluminum radiator, threw out the flex fan.

Re: Thermal Fan Clutch

Thanks for all the help, I did find it on Flexalite fan for the clutch. Guess I wasn't lookin in the right place. My Camaro's thanks you all for helping keep her cool in the summer. It was 5718 model for future ref.
