Author Topic: Cooling fan removal  (Read 1000 times)

Page 180 of the workshop manual describes how to remove the cooling fan using the special tool, it also says that if this tool is unavailable then it can be done by inserting the bolt loosely hitting it with a hammer and pulling on the fan at the same time. Well all I can say to that method is 'Good Luck'.  The fan is jammed on tight and requires plenty of effort. After doing a bit of research I found out that the required thread (30mm x1.5) was used for some hydraulic fittings so was able to obtain blocking plug with that thread from a supplier (Pirtek), drilled a hole in the centre and using a long 12mm bolt and nut made a suitable tool. It works the same as a bicycle crank remover but on a slightly larger scale but it requires a lot of effort and, be warned, because the shaft is tapered it releases suddenly with a loud bang.
