Water pump/fan replacement....need some quick help, please.

Posted by Kenster on October 17, 2012 at 12:59:34 from (

I'm in the process of replacing the water pump on my 52 8N. First time to try this. Going slow and methodical. Took the hood off. I can't imagine trying to do this in the tight, dark quarters with the hood on all squatted down and bent over and under.

So, I got the alternator out of the way and the hoses removed. I begin to remove the bolts holding the fan assembly on. Got three bolts off. The fourth one, however, is rounded off. No way that thing is coming off. I was able to get the pump unbolted and removed the whole thing with the fan still attached.

The fan is really in poor shape so I think I may as well replace it while I'm at it and not sweat the time and effort to do surgery on that rounded out bolt.

So, my question is.... Should I go back with a standard four blade fan or upgrade to a six blade?

Are all six blade fans "pushers?" My understanding is that a pusher blade moves air from the engine compartment and blows it into the radiator, rather than pulling it from the front of the tractor into the radiator. Seems like a pusher is blowing hot air from the engine into the radiator.

If it matters, I live in south Central Texas and it gets very hot here. I'd like to run into town to the New Holland Dealer or Tractor Supply and get this part today and get 'er done.

Thanks for your help.
