32 Fan Hub gears

Hi guys. I took my 32 out for a drive last night and the fan hub was making an awful noise. I thought it was bearings inside only to find out it has two gears in there.

Would there be any harm in running it without the smaller gear?

I ask because it is missing about 1/3 of its teeth.

Anyone know where I could get a new gear?

The short answer to your question is yes, but you should modify the hub with a new bearing before too long. Otherwise, you need to keep an eye out for an original replacement and lubricate it to keep it running.

The buick fan hub requires motor oil to operate properly. Most don't know this and never think to put oil in the hub.
