Just came across this. Could this be an original stamped unit even though it has the word "Eaton" stamped into it?

I carefully taped off the plated center area that has the ink stampings and glass beaded the fins to just clean them up.  I left it that way.  Like yours, you can still make out the ink stamps and it doesn't look over-restored.  The ink stamp area is towards the radiator anyway and from the engine side it looks clean.

The clutch fan in this thread seems to be a hybrid. Part factory part OTC replacement according to the thread below. ???

I mixed up a weak solution of purple cleaner and with a toothbrush cleaned the center section. It left the ink stamps and patina. Then I masked that off and the hub and shot the ins aluminum with walnut shells to clean it. Then, to protect from corrosion shot it with Everbrite satin clear.
Looks good to me. Unless you have a mirror you can't see the front anyway when it's installed.

Picture #1 in this thread. It shows a clutch fan with an ink stamp date code along with the word "EATON" stamped into it.

Well that's interesting  :o  I didn't think OTC replacements had date code ink stamps on them.

clm69z28 did you ever clean this up ?

Are there any other members with original clutch fans for comparison?

Thanks, Doc.

I have pics before restoration and after for my Delco fan clutch. But that won't answer your question which I believe is valid, because I don't see the EATON pressed into the original example picture here http://www.camaros.org/coolingsystems.shtml.

The restoration done by http://www.kirkconnellcorvettes.com/ was top notch. Fast return and very professional. My clutch had a little wiggle in it, so it needed replaced or restored.

Pic of my original Eaton clutch, my X77 is an 01C build.

Bad part - I spray bombed the fan and clutch black in '75 during a rebuild - thought at the time it looked better, plus I couldn't foresee the stamps and surface finish being as important then as it is today. My bad -

Good part - the paint kept the surface and the stamping intact as you see it today. I got curious about the date coding a while back during one of our other threads, scraped the paint off with a fingernail and discovered the Eaton, CV and date stamps intact (thank goodness). Now, if I could just figure out how to remove the rest of the paint without wearing all of my fingernails to the quick, and taking a month to do it -

Regards,
Steve
