It seems that my bearing fan spindle has worn out and I can't seem to locate one. The part I need is #21A-8626 as shown in the diagram. Of course I will take a complete assembly or as much as anybody might have available.
I called C&G, they don't have any either.
BUT .. I just got a call back from a local guy who says that he doesn't have any of them, but he has a few good used units complete so I have to stop and see him on Sunday.
PartsVoice.com & rearcounter.com = Obsolete parts websites

Listed on rearcounter.com = NOS PARTS LTD in Waxahachie TX has ONE = 972-937-2201.
There's another one listed on rearcounter by a private seller in Springville CA .. but you have to email the seller, as the contact info isn't listed.
rearcounter.com = Just sign on and type the part number, registration isn't required like it is on PartsVoice.com .. Both websites: Searching for obsolete parts is free.
On PartsVoice, the number has to be typed WITHOUT spaces or hyphens, like this...for example: 21A8626
PartsVoice has a gazillion sources including about 30% of the Ford dealers, rearcounter doesn't have anywhere near as many sources, but some are listed that are not listed on PartsVoice and vice versa.
Green Sales & Carpenter's obsolete parts are listed on both.
Well, the local guy had 2, one that turned kinda stiff, the other that had a spot that dragged some. I took that one that turned kinda hard, will take it apart tomorrow and clean, reassemble with my fan and put some 80-90 gear lube in it.
Pretty sure it's supposed to get 30wt. Hope it works for you!
I read on another Ford site that the original recommendation was motor oil, but Ford issued a later service order changing it to 85 wt gear oil.
EDIT: From VanPelts website
"The actual oil capacity of the hub cavity is about 2 ounces. Ford originally recommended regular motor oil, but changed that later to 85-90 weight gear oil....the same stuff used in your transmission."
