Turbo Duct Bracket

The bracket which supports the metal Turbo ducts clamp and mounts to the hydraulic fan mounting point has worn through at the clamp bolt hole.

Does anyone know who supplied this bracket to WRV?

Probably Metal Magic, in the Yakima area. I believe they supplied all the cut/bent/welded metal parts including frame elements.

However, its probably more expedient to take it to a local welding outfit. I'd try somewhere that does "trailer hitch" work in your area. this is pretty low tech stuff. while at it, might ask what they think should be done to alleviate the reason it wore through, as that's not supposed to happen. They can probably suggest a firmer solution so it doesn't happen again.

Thanks, Mike I will look into your suggestion. I believe the failure was cause by vibration. Do not think the bolt was tight, thus allowed rotation and elongated the hole throught the end of the bracket.
