Bringing this back to life. Was it ever determined if this clutch fan was an original piece? I just removed one from an 05A Norwood Z that is identical right down to the Eaton stamp and black paint.
Thanks, Doc.

Include some photos and we can hopefully confirm for you...

You need to resize the picture.  There are several free sites that allow you to do this.  I use PicMonkey.com.  Another is befunky.com.  I'm sure there are several others.

If your still having trouble and unable, you can email them to me and I'll resize and post for you.

Darrell, can you post pictures of your clutch fan assembly?

Thanks, Doc.

Danzo sent me his clutch/fan photos, which were a bit too large.  I've resized them slightly and they are pictured below.

Danzo:  what's been posted previously would imply that your clutch is an OTC unit, and not a factory installed unit, since it's stamped 'EATON' rather than 'inked' with a date.  Your unit has also been spray painted, which would have obscured any ink stamped info if it were there.

Gary, thank you for posting my pictures. The only problem I have with this being an OTC piece is that the 772 B69 fan and the clutch assembly were all painted black at the same time. I find it hard to believe someone would change the clutch and bother to reapply paint. Did these come as an assembly(fan and clutch together) OTC? Hopefully Darrell will post pictures of his. The saga continues.

Doc.

Doubt the fan and the clutch came as an assembly because of the different manufacturers - in your case, Schwitzer for the fan (Hayes-Albion produced the unstamped version) and Eaton for the clutch. It would've been necessary to bolt the two together and then repackage the assembly in the parts supply chain somewhere.
Maybe both were repainted together by a PO.
You won't be able to see the clutch stamp once installed in any case.

Just FYI, I have recently discovered "Paint" which is a program which came with my computer. PC, not mac. Re-sizes pics easily. I to use photoshop, but now I can re-size in no time using "Paint". I think most everyone with a computer has this program.

I am using an app on my android phone called reduce photo size. I select the picture and hit reduce and select something like 640x480 and save. Works great

Photos of the original Eaton CV fan clutch from my 2B Norwood RS/Z.

No Eaton stamp on the bottom of the face. B5J (decodes: "B" February, "5" day of month, "J" 1969)



1.5" to top of flange (no stamp on flange edge)

Here you go Doc,  my fan clutch with the Eaton stamped into the metal.  Again, my understanding is that these were service replacements.

Does anyone have a service replacement fan clutch for comparison?

Thanks, Doc.
