My fan clutch finally went out...

...and took my radiator and the fan with it.

All the screeching and out of balance wiggle I noticed in the fan finally came to their natural end.

The fan and clutch separated from the water pump knocking a chunk out of one of the aluminum fan blades and puncturing my radiator about two inches from the bottom.

I actually have the clutch on order and could be here any day but I am pretty sure it doesn't come with the bolt I need to connect it to the water pump.

Does anybody know where I could find that bolt?

Junkyard! Get the hardware you need, as well as the replacement fan. All for next to nothing, too! I <3 junkyards.

Bummer. Sorry to read. Had something similar happen with my MGB I had in Hawaii.

Well, in hindsight it was probably my fault.

While the clutch was going bad I turned it backwards to check on it.

Since the bearings had seized up and the bolt that holds it all onto the water pump is attached with so little torque, I am pretty sure I loosened the bolt that led to it coming off.

Same thing happened to me a while ago. I got the bolt from a dealer after finding out the part number from detali.ru

I called a local(120 miles away) MB dealer and they shipped it to me pretty quickly.

MB charged me something like $4.95 plus shipping it came to $10 or $11.

Impex wanted $20 for it.

They also want $3450 for a differential for the same car.....
