MB Fan Clutch

Hey guys, so as some of ya'll know i just got done with my motor swap with my mercedes and its running but i have a couple problems to fix. One of which is my fan clutch and im puzzled about it. Its scrapping up against the pulley behind it and its rather irritating, let alone bad for it. Its quieted down a little bit, but thats just because the metal has scrapped off.

any veteran mechanics out there that can give me some help?

Let me start off with telling you that your engine looks really clean. Kudos on that. It looks like the fan clutch bearing bracket has went out. Maybe dropped or bent. But it is a common problem with age. If you grab the fan are you able to wiggle it back and forth? If so then that is more than likely the problem.

You probably don't need this since I'm sure you have done it a few times now, but I thought it might help you along. I know from experience removing the fan is the WORST part of just about any job you have to do on this engine. Good luck.

REMOVAL:

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Unclip both catches (arrow) and remove fan shroud (1).






3. Remove distributor (4) and set the wires off to the side.





4. Squeeze the plastic holder (174) on the sides (arrows) and disconnect along with the coolant hose (178).






5. Slide the flat springs (628) back and raise the fan cowling (198) and place it back over the fan.






6. Insert an 8mm bit into the retaining screw (201). Turn the belt pulley until the retaining slots line up on the fan bearing bracket and the belt pulley.

7. Insert counter-holder (Special Service Tool #103 589 00 40 00) into the retaining slot of the fan bearing bracket and the mounting hole of the belt pulley.

8. Remove retaining screw (201) and pull the fan (206) forward and out.

INSTALLATION:

1. Place the fan onto the belt pulley. Insert the retaining nut and torque to 45 Nm (33 ft.lbs).
2. Place the fan cowling back on the radiator and secure the flat springs.
3. Place the coolant hose back into the plastic holder on top of the fan shroud.
4. Install the distributor.
5. Install the fan shroud and secure the catches on both sides.
6. Connect the negative battery cable.
