    TD42 upgraded fan and hub assembly

    Hi all, I've done a few decent hill climbs and drives in high 40's (49deg on Friday) and notice the water temps rise quite quickly towards 100deg since the new pump and turbo. Haven't had it overheat yet but I'd like a bit more wiggle room for when I want to tow.

    Amongst other things I want to put a new fan and hub on. I've seen a few people recommending the UFI upgraded fan and hub assembly but also see "quick azz" advertising on eBay making claims thiers is the bee's knees.

    Anyone got any personal knowledge of the differences between them?

    I'm not sure what @MudRunnerTD has but he's upgraded his fan hub assembly to good success. He can probably point you in the right direction?

    I think he is running the G35 fan like @mudski and my self. A cheaper common alternative with good results.

    After I fitted this fan I found my temps recover quicker after a bit of load. You can hear this fans air whooshing compared to the factory TD fan. Also adding some oil to the hub will make it work harder (spin more of the time), will help a bit. @mudski is the man here, hes experimented a lot with this and found a sweet spot, helped me heaps too.

    There is also a certain Pajero model fan, that can be adaptored to suit a TD which is meant to be good. I believe @Winnie mentioned this recently.

    Yeah the UFI one uses the same Mitsubishi fan and hub, the only difference is the adaptor they make.
    I can't comment on the difference between them as I haven't seen either.

    Ended up trying the "Quickazz" mob. Was a good buying experience, fast shipping and a scootch cheaper than others with the full fan and hub assy. I've had zero issues with patrolapart in the past.. but $30 saved will pay for the scotch to help me fit it.

    Did manage to get it fitted today but I haven't been for a drive yet. Will report back, probably after Australia day weekend on the results.

    That's what I was hoping for! I haven't yet over heated but I have seen the gauge headed that way.. Just wanted a bit more wiggle room haha. Your post gives me hope!

    Just took it for a short drive.. I tell ya, when the fan gets going it starts to worry me that it might suck a small child in through the grill if they get too close. Total different sound now.
