I recently bought a TJ in which the fan had been changed to some plastic type fan. The plastic fan is now cracked in 15+ places and needs replacement. Everything is still mechanical and looks "stock" except for the actual white plastic fan.
I was thinking of staying with a belt driven fan instead of going electric. I'm looking at going with the Flex-a-lite 1517 Gold Star Stainless Steel 17" flex fan.
Link to Amazon's product page for the fan.
From the looks of things, this fan doesn't need a fan clutch. Is this correct?
If so, then it looks like it requires a "Flex-a-lite 14556 Mill Finish 2" Fan Spacer Kit" spacer to get proper clearance from the belts. I also see several websites trying to sell an additional "Flex-a-lite 851 1 1/2" Screw-On Spacer Adapter" as well. To me, these two things seem almost redundant of each other. Do I need both?
