Here's pucs of the (finally) finished 2nd half of the Mechanical Fan replacement bracket: ... 1.jpg?dl=0 ... 8.jpg?dl=0 ... 9.jpg?dl=0 ... 2.jpg?dl=0

(AC pulley restored just in time for North American Winter!)

I'm using a tbelt pulley instead of an accessory belt pulley.
I see only good reasons to use a wider flangeless pulley. On either side of this pulley the crank pulley & AC pulley both have guiding flanges so there seems to be no danger of the belt shifting off this intermediate smooth idler. And, it's one less pair of flanges to abuse the belt's edges.

I'm very pleased with the quality of the fab shop's work.
They're going to give me a quote for a single integrated dual-pulley bracket within a week.
Aluminum will be an option, but obviously at higher cost.

If there was enough interest, I'd consider approaching this as a complete "Mechanical Fan & Viscous Heater Elimination Kit".
- Integrated Dual-Pulley Mechanical Fan Replacement Bracket w/pulleys/bolts/spacers.
- Direct-Mount High CFM/Low Amp Electric Fan (=/>Taurus CFM) w/CRD-fit Fan Shroud & OEM MOPAR plug to utilize existing [gasser] electric fan circuit [and/or an independent thermo-probe & relay setup].

Or, JUST THE DUAL-PULLEY INTEGRATED BRACKET, and you guys can source your own pulleys, bolts & spacers, as well as fan/shroud/wiring, etc.

Thoughts & Interest, if any?
