Re: '40 Fan

I used lock washers, but locktite is a good backup idea. Nobody wants a loose fan.

The fan & sheave balanced, and while I was re-installing the fan I couldn't locate the original bolts. It looks like they are 5/16-24 x 3/4" SAE hex head cap screws. Is there anything special about...

Re: Dennis Carpenter, R.I.P.
