Is it a side facing radiator or rear? Freightliner or Spartan chassis?

There's a lot of truck and motorhome repair shops up and down I-5. I use Pacific Truck Center in Ridgefield for engine, generator, and air brake work. They have a huge facility and might be of help.

I have a 400 ISL pushing 40' and it has plenty of power. It's been a great engine. But pushing 36' it must be like driving a sports car!

It is a side mounted fan and radiator. I'm going to try getting a part name and number on Monday and do a parallel search to theirs.

Thanks for suggested shop.

BRgds,

Hydraulic pump and fan motor are Sauer-Danfoss products--British owned company. Don't know if fan blade assembly is a generic or SD part. In the northwest USA, Berenden Fluid power was the OEM provider. My spelling is probably way off here but do a search on this forum for fan motor--lots of information on SD products and the OEM provider.

We replaced ours 2 summers ago - we went to Coach Care in Coberg OR - only problem was - Sauer-Danfoss sent a defective one. It took them 3 months to make a new one and send it to CC - so it was not there on our way home from Alaska last summer.

We went to Rincon in San Clemente CA to put the new one on and had to pay for the re-installation ourselves, but it seems to be working OK now. Our trip back east this summer will tell for sure!

We just replaced the hydraulic pump in ours - took two weeks to get the pump in (shipment already in route to the states to a supplier our repair facility found). They are expensive.

Us too as we live about where I-5 and I-205 meet. But last time there I had them replace two broken shocks (thanks to Cummins NW in Portland). Pacific did a poor job of aligning the hub covers before hitting them with the air gun. Need to take them off and get them straightened out.
