Anybody got a spare fan hub for a flathead 8?

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.

Did you try Midwest Early ford? According to their catalog they carry them.

I'd offer you my spare, but it's seized up.

Yea, they show it in their catalog, as does Mac's but neither of them have it.

bmoran4 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
It is scaring me that I am seeing more threads like this where all of our favorite shops list the part as availble in their catalog, but then when someone needs it, nobody has it!

You can try C&G Ford - I got a whole fan hub assembly from them not too long ago: Old Ford Parts at C&G Ford Parts. Tens of thousands in reproduction.C&G Ford Parts

Good Luck!

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

The part I need is 21A-8626
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.

I contacted NOS, they don't have any, didn't update inventory. Emailed the other this morning and have not received a reply yet.

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."
