    Haven't had a chance to put it on, but I don't see how this won't help. Everybody said use a 7 blade fan and clutch from a early to mid eighties k30 454 crewcab w/4.56's. Well, My dealer was unable to find a listing that included the 4.56's so here is was I got.

    GM part # 15963247

    List price is 156.35 :eek1: , but I only paid about half that (it's good to know people):D . Was a k30 crewcab w/454 auto a/c and heavy duty cooling. No luck on the 7 blade fan, has been superceeded by the 5 blade. So I'll just run my 5 blade till I come across one.

    Here's the pics comparing old clutch (Stock 87 clutch) to the new clutch:

    Not to burst your "hook-up" bubble but you can get those all day long from gmpartsdirect for just over $80. :D

    Have you checked Hayden for a 7-blade fan? I know they used to make one.

    Nobody said you paid too much. I was commenting on your "it's good to know people" comment.

    Your "buddy" didn't hook you up any better than joe blow on the street could get from gmpartsdirect.

    Read and comprehend, people...

    Actually he did get me a better price than gmpartsdirect, but I really have nothing to prove by arguing with you about the price of a clutch fan or how good it is to know somebody.




    Back on topic, I have only been able to find 6 blade fans in the aftermarket. I'd like to find one around here, but junkyard pickin's are slim.

    Cheese and rice... I wasn't even trying to argue about the price of anything. Just making a simple statement.

    Anyway, summit has 7-blade fans but not for use with a clutch. They do have 6-blade clutch fans, though. Same thing with Hayden.

    My 83 Jimmy with original 305 had a 7 blade.

    I came up with this.

    1983
    Fan Blade
    Chevy Truck C305.7,7-BLADE 020301 $20 Masterson Auto Parts USA-KY(Webster) 1-800-405-0963

    I searched on www.car-part.com

    Hope that helps.

    I think people forget that the advertised price isn't GMPD's final. That fan clutch is $104.89 *shipped* folks. :)
