In post #43, last pic is the new brace for the fan. It has already sheared the bolt holding it to the block. Time for a new fan blade. This one has one broken blade which throws it way out of balance. Toro wants $95 for one, but I found a better price, $71.

This is supposed to be braced from both sides of the block (red arrow, alternator tensioner).

I am tempted to just go with an electric fan, but the rear support it welded into the motor mount. I can cut it loose from that. Kind of a 'catch 22'.

Here is another spare part I forgot about. 90 degree box for the mower deck:

The longer the PO has it the more challenging it will be to "fix" it, lol

Good luck fixing it Kenny! I don't see why a small car electric radiator fan wouldn't work for this? I know you'll get her tip top no matter what route you go! I still want to see the size of the mouse that ate that blade though :D :rolling:

 

I saw some pictures of one of these yesterday and it looked like something you would have on this. It was a FEL on the same model as this one and he had a box blade and york rake attachment that took the place of the bucket. It was kind of a cool set up, being it is all in the front of the tractor.

I'm going to have to mow this weekend if it's dry enough. In post #46, I put a pic of the fan. I'm thinking I can get a stick-on wheel weight to put on the broken blade to help balance things until the new fan arrives. Anybody got a better idea?

Kenny, if I could throw a little caution here. Weird stresses on a 20+ yr old piece of mouse eaten plastic, that has seen at least the elements some... Possibly sun... I would be wary to run it or weight it.

The radiator is in to nice a shape & it would just suck if the fan came apart in there.

Yeah, I'm a bit worried about that too! Not sure when the fan will get here & I'm painting a house all week. We're down to 2 mowers since the Ford quit. Takes a full day with them to mow the place!

Tried some ceiling fan weights. NADA! They helped, but couldn't handle the RPM's! Guess it's time to pull the radiator and get the other support made for the fan shaft! Hopefully, the fan will arrive soon!

Does it have a temperature gauge? If so, try trimming all the other blades to the same size until the new fan arrives. Just keep an eye on the temperature.
