Cougar Fan Blades - can you count?

On what day in 1966 did the secret Cougar marketing program begin? April 1st, April Fools day. On what day in 1968 did the Cobra Jet 428 become available in the Cougar April 1st April Fools day. Is there a message in there somewhere? This is the place to find out.

Cougar Fan Blades - can you count?

Which of these fan blade counts did NOT come from the factory on Cougars (years 1967 to 1973)? 4? 5? 6? 7? 8? (Hint: 2 of these should be easy for you!)

Correct. As far as I know, a 8 bladed fan was never made/used. 7 blade fans (fixed blades with clutch) were used for several yeras. (C9WY, C9ZE, C80E, etc). 5 blade fans with flex blades and no clutch were also very common. Now, what about 4 or 6 blade fans?

Yes, to the 6 blade fan. Pretty obscure fan, was used on 1969 428 Super Cobra Jet engines.

So no 4 blade? It was in a box with the stock parts for our M code FMX no AC Eliminator. Was the 6 blade fan a fixed or clutch fan? Our SCJ has a C9ZE-E on it. (3.91 C6 car)

Yes, to the 4 blade fans on 289/302/351's with standard cooling on many models.

6 blade fan for the 1969 SCJ was a fixed pitch non-clutch fan.

8 blade is the answer.

Duh! I misread the question the first time. I was trying to figure out which 2 were not used. Mike
