Suitable fan, clutch, pulley for 67 GT500
« on: March 05, 2020, 10:31:25 AM »
I've seen multiple comments about the rarity and expense of the "correct" parts for the 67 GT500 (correct fan and fan clutch being good examples) and while I'd like nothing more than to have all the correct parts on my tribute car, I'd be quite satisfied with substitute parts that have the correct appearance and function and are more available and affordable leaving the other parts for the guys that are trying to maintain or restore an original car. Having said that, I'm currently trying to chase down the fan, clutch, and water pump pulley arrangement for a 428 with AC and PS. First question is what are the part numbers for the "correct" parts and second question is are there substitute parts that would provide the correct appearance and function for these three items.

I wouldn't bother with the 500.00 reproduction fan clutch for a clone. You can you the C6OE-G fan and do not use what the parts store list for a 390 mustang. You'll need a 2711. It actually clears the radiator. I went through this finding a suitable substitute when I sent the factory fan clutch out for rebuild.

The water pump pulley used W or W/O AC is a C6AZ 8509 A, engineering number is C6AE 8509 A.

Is that a triple groove pulley?

Kieth ,  C6AE-A marked pulley is for factory A/C cars in the case of 67 GT500 . In the case of non A/C the C6AE-F pulley was called for from the factory .

I can't see the bottom of the pulley clearly and the chrome makes it difficult to see, I have the V/C's off for valve adjustment, so I can't turn it over. Do you have both you can take pictures of for comparison?

After pouring back over my notes and these forums I have generated this list of pulleys that are proper for a 67GT500 with PS, AC, and no thermactor pump. It confuses me that people utilize a mix of casting numbers, part numbers, and engineering numbers when they talk about these parts so I may have a mix of those in this list. Can anyone verify the correctness of this list.

Are you buying for factory AC, or without? Everything changes. I also have my V/C's off for valve adjustment. I will turn the engine over after I put the cork gaskets on the covers and reinstall them.

I am hoping to replicate the factory AC.
