D1 300TDI 2 piece Fan Shroud questions
My 300TDi D1 has a one-piece fan shroud (a Defender shroud, I imagine). In the source of doing a P-gasket replacement (and now replacing the water pump which I cracked in the process of reinstallation), it has come to my attention that removing the fan (which, as far as I could figure out has to be done by removing the entire shroud at the same time) is a big pain in the behind.
I noticed in poking around online that 300TDi Discos should have a 2-piece shroud, ESR3276 and ESR2848, or maybe this is just some of them. . .
Two quick questions:
1) with the 2-piece shroud, can you in fact get the fan out the top for belt changes, water pump work, etc?
2) How does the 2-piece shroud attach to the radiator frame? My current shroud fits over two threaded studs on the trailing edge of the radiator frame . . .same thing? (and, no, I don't think I have the Defender radiator frame, since new holes were drilled in the one-piece shroud to fit on the studs on my rad frame)
If this is sufficiently beneficial and a bolt-in swap, I will probably try to find a breaker who can send a used one over here . . . . thanks in advance for your thoughts and collective wisdom.
