GT 500KR fan clutch
« on: December 12, 2019, 08:43:11 AM »
Does anyone have a late June/ July KR with 4-spd and AC that can check their fan clutch engineering number? My fan clutch needs rebuilt / replaced, and I do not think it is original to the car. It is a E-C8OE-B and information I have so far is the correct fan clutch for AC car is either C8ZX-A or C8OE-C. My car is 04412, so I'd like verification on any cars close in production.

Any experience with the reproduction fan clutches currently being sold?

All information is appreciated. Thank you.

I bought one from Chris Brown and am very happy with it.  My car had a rebuilt clutch and it didn't have enough resistance causing the car to run hot.  Experts can verify the number for a KR.

I have what ever fan clutch you need.    I have had some owners call me and order a C8OE-B clutch for  there kr.  This clutch was used on 68 1/2 cobra jets also.  So who knows? I will leave that open for conversation.   Never the less I have both.

typical KR uses c8zx a for ac and c8oe c for non ac but have seen more than 1 ac cars with the c8oe c. c8oe b I've only seen on non Shelby cjs (Dearborn/sj)

Got my KR w/ AC fan clutch today from Chris Brown and it is a very nice piece. Anyone looking for a new fan clutch, I'd highly recommend. Can't wait to get it on the car!

Thanks Chris.
