Default Fan Clutch

One thing that always bugged me on replacement fan clutches is the bolt pattern. Rather then having straight holes like a oem ,they have slots to make it fit a bigger range of vehicles. A friend had an idea to make just a ring to fit over the slots giving the appearance of a oem clutch . A little detail but makes it look a little better in the engine compartment.

I like the idea. Can he mass produce them? I would think that there would be a market for them. I know that I would buy one.

GREAT!!! Idea should repro it. Along those lines the Kanter kids of Just Suspention (Old parts on Ebay) have done a pretty good repro of the 51 to 56 Packard mirrors a real find for all of us with crapo mirrors cause the Packard ones had bad mirror coating. Can be found at http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-NEW-Exteri...53.m1438.l2649
