Hi Ultradog,

The system showed no evidence of recent or current radiator leaks. When tractor was in the shop for an over-all inspection after I took ownership, the old radiator cap was replaced with a new part, and that new part is rated for 4 pounds.

If there was a coolant leak prior to when I became the owner, I cannot be certain. There is a greasy mess in the loader mount frame under the front mounted pump. It appears there was a leak at some time, but I am not certain if there is anything more than hydraulic fluid residue that I am seeing.

The fan itself is attached still, however when I rotated the fan to snap a picture of the broken blade, I could feel, and see, the fan hitting the frame.

So, I am wondering now if something has come loose and caused the fans to slip out of position. I could not get a view of how or where the fan connects, but looking at the two manuals I have, the FO-20 and the Ford Tractor Shop manual the covers Models 600 - 1801, it appears as you suggested, this issue could be related to the water pump.

This picture rotated counter-clockwise 90 degrees, but it shows the pump for the hydraulics and where the fan is hitting the frame.

This photo mysteriously rotated 180 degrees, but it is showing where the fan blade is mounted to the front of the engine.

It looks like your fan is hitting your front axle in the pic. Axle pin might be gone past serviceability.
