Appreciate your feedback. One of the Jetfires is a Non-A/C car and one is an A/C car both with the fan clutch and big hub pump. Without further info it appears to be the same set up if you have the HD cooling package with the crossflow rad A/C or not.

The shaft on the WP is the same regardless of HUB size so we can work out getting a pump rebuilt with the big hub and proper short spacing. But the fan is a fan clutch fan so will not bolt up without a fan clutch. Would have to change over to a regular fan. The orig fan will bolt up to a modern fan clutch like the 2765 but the modern fan clutches I have found will not bolt up to the hub. Like to stick with a fan clutch if possible.

We can switch over to a std hub short pump from a standard core with shortened shaft/D&D alum overdrive short pulley to fit the smaller hub/hayden 2765 cluch that fits the smaller hub with orig fan but was thinking with all the Jetfires on the road here that someone had a solution for the original setup that would offer dependable long distance touring.

Is everyone using the original fanclutch? Rebuilt?
