Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2009: No spit fan conversion help
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Erich Bruckner on Wednesday, December 02, 2009 - 03:30 pm:

I want to convert my 26 fan hub to sealed bearings. The method outlined in the mtfca engine book uses unsealed bearings.

Any info or advice on bearings needed or proceedures to follow?

Thanks all, Erich

P.S. I know about the premade unit available from suppliers but I love a challenge and I am in no position to not be cheap.

Erich,

Jeff Humble posted his conversion using needle bearings with integral seals. It looks pretty slick to me. Do some searching and you may find it. If not, Jeff will probably chime in and help.

Go to your local Bearings and Seals stores,give them the unsealed bearing number and they can usually find a sealed on to replace it.

Erich,

See "1926 Fan Pulley" on Forum 2008 for Jeff's solution. Last posted to in January of '09.

Erich,
Here is an oler thread to convert to needle bearings and add an oil seal, but it is a wet bearing that requires oil in the hub. I do not know of a sealed bearing that will work.

Thanks guys, that does help me out. I also figured out what I have been doing wrong with searches here and should be better able to find this stuff in the future.

Like Bud says...bearing houses can convert an unsealed bearing to a sealed equivalent for just about anything.

Generally speaking, as general advice to those who don't do this stuff too often...here is the syntax for the SKF bearing system...

Not for this application, but as an example...

Say that there is a bearing that matches SKF 6205. A deep groove ball bearing. Simply making the number 6205-RS gives you a single sided seal of the exact same bearing. Making the number 6205-2RS gives you a double sided seal arrangement. There are lots of other alpha suffixes that can be added to specify other things, but not usually needed for general work.

FWIW..........a 'tip of the day'
