Default 1967 L78 Fan Clutch 3.25" functional replacement recommendation

Technical Inquiry:

Looking for a new functional fan clutch that will bolt up to my L78 fan with 3.25" bolt pattern.

Can't afford an original clutch right now but I'd like to run the correct fan.

I can't seem to find one with a 3.25" bolt pattern. Anyone?

I'm going to give Hayden Part 2713 a shot as it does have a 3.25" bolt circle.

If you are going to buy something from The Parts Place, CALL and ask the person if it is in stock and have them write it up right then. I've had issues with the part being "sold" and back ordered a half hour after checking stock with them and then compiling a large order online.

Default Replacement Clutch

I purchased this and it fits very well & will report how it functions when I lite off and run the motor and car. This is used with a Factory Solid Lifter Fan. While the replacement lacks the appearance of the GM Clutch, it should fit the bill as an economical temporary replacement for those seeking the rare orig clutch.
