Anybody got a source for the Hydro cooling fan that goes on the drive shaft?
It's for a Massey MF14 or MF16, it's a plastic fan and looks like this but with one more blade on it.

Thanks in advance.

Not a clue, Doug.

But if it's any comfort, the one on my 1655 was so busted up that I removed it permanently 16 years ago. It did a lot of summertime heavy work after that with no overheating issues.

Normal operating temp is 140 - 160*, high normal is 170 - 190*, and overheated is 200+*. Sundstrand rated their performance charts at 180* F.

Thanks for trying Bob just thought that now is the time to do something about it.
I think I'll be just putting it back on unless someone else comes up with one.

you still can get the fan throw snapper for the 1650 ( the dealer wanted $110 bucks ). i cut the fans off mine, keeping the center part. i bought a metal fan for a pressure washer at princess auto and screwed the center part to it. had to file the fins just a little but it work perfect

I made a fan blade out of 1/16 plate.I copied the old one onto a piece of cardboard [ just kept rotating it to the good blades] and then using a jigsaw with metal blade.Cut it out then had to twist the blades to the proper angle and drilled the right size hole in the center and welded the blade onto a pulley hub [the weld on pulley hubs] its been working good since approx 10 yrs now. The original got broke one winter when my snow blower lift mechanisim came loose and you know the rest.Larry

I just thought of something after posting the above.My MF GC 2300 has a hydro fan on it.It actually bolts onto a hub,its got a pretty big center almost like what the one in your pic shows maybe you could just make a hub and bolt it onto that.Larry
