Fan Removal Without Removing Radiator Stack:
SUBJECT: Fan Drive and Fan Blade Replacement
A. Itís been brought to our attention that the fan drive and fan blade can be removed as an assembly with the radiator and fan shroud in-vehicle. This will save units repair time, improve your vehicle readiness and help alleviate any work overload at unit maintenance.
B. Below is the new procedure. It eliminates the task to remove radiator and fan shroud before beginning the task.
The fan drive hose may be modified to add a quick-disconnect at commanderís discretion. Refer to TB43-0001-39-3, Dec 94. This will make it easier to apply compressed air to disengage fan drive clutch if necessary.
