Here is the fan and shaft that broke on my 1915. Minor damage to the radiator which cost $50 to repair.
Thinking I got lucky here...
Whew! I bet that made some serious blood curdling noise.
John, what does the rest of that truck look like? There is nothing better than a well used truck.
I had a blade puncture the hood. Keep that in mind when standing next to a running engine.
At the start of a progressive tour back in the 1980s, I was fussing around when Howard Genrich poked inside the hood of my 17 touring and announced that one blade had cracked. In a fit of frustration, I broke it off and the opposite one as well. Ran the rest of the tour just fine....
I built this truck from three different piles of parts I purchased throughout the state of Washington.
Nice looking truck.
Cool looking dude!
Looks like some kinda movie star.
