Per the pics I posted, it's easily view-able from above if you remove the door from inside the coach.

Boowho??

I saw that but then I'd want to start cleaning the engine and that would be just another can of worms.

Funny, they have more blades and cool millions of vehicles daily. Some vehicles have dual electric fans. Just where is the data that they move only "half at best"?

The problem with an electric fan is, that you are not moving the fan blade with a 340hp motor. They simply don't move the volume of air that is necessary for a diesel pusher.

Yeah, you guys are right. Looking at is one thing, screwing it up completely is another. I'd pretty much decided to step back anyhow. Will be interesting to read the response to my email to FL CS tomorrow.

I'd think that email would be good enough to be written proof of what was determined.

Tom was successful in getting his repaired with the help of New Your state having his back, IIRC.

Four Bolt Fan on Cummins

I have a Berkshire on a 2007 Freightliner Chassis. In 2013 my rig started to heat up and I had it towed to a Diesel Repair shop. I had not heard about the bolt problem. I thought the serpentine belt had broken. The shop took the floor out and found the fan hanging by one bolt and two sheared of bolts were somewhere. They are the metric equivalent to 5/16" fine thread. I think they are either Metric 8mm or 10mm and a 13mm wrench fits them. Seems mighty small to hold a fan assembly that big. I attached a picture of the bolts. Notice they broke at different lengths and the washer is a plain flat washer. I called the Freightliner hot line and the fellow immediately told me they would replace it with a five bolt fan at no cost. I could have had it fixed at the Diesel shop or have it towed to a Freightliner shop and it would be warranted for one year. I have tried to see the bolts from underneath and the shroud blocks the view. Freightliner has always been very helpful when I call them.
