1989 325LE fan clutch

I replaced the fan clutch on sunday. A two hour job laying on top of the engine....never again !!! Now the water pump has a small leak, oh well...one more short weekend for us on columbus day weekend, a short trip to cooperstown, ny. I will do the water pump over the winter, but i am going to take the grill off and attack it from the front. I will also replace all the belts and hoses at the same time. I scored a new teleflex speedometer on ebay for 29.95. The po had replaced the original with an autometer which does not look correct. Also scored a new 30 amp shoreline power reel to replace the missing one. Heavy overhaul planned for this winter including a central vac install, all new pex water lines, two new flat screen led tv's. Going to sell my 2001 airstream 390xl and just keep the 1989 325le and our 2005 34' classic limited....more later

Sounds awesome! Been very busy and unable to work on any projects, glad someone has had luck dealing with their aluminitis.

You have pictures of the 34 w/SO?

OK, so now we are enjoying our last trip for the season in Cooperstown, NY. Wanted to take the 325, but the water pump started to leak after the fan clutch was replaced. I got the fresh water tank out and I am replacing all if the plumbing lines with new pex. Replaced one bathroom fan already, shower, very difficult. Going to pull the nose off the front next month to tackle the water pump, compression check first, if numbers are good, will replace the timing chain as well. If compression is poor, will replace engine with new 502. Found 2 NOS AM/FM antennas, big job getting old cable out....oh the list is so long !!!

That is a gorgeous trailer! I think yours is the first 34' I have seen with slide outs!

This spring we had a mechanic send our radiator out for a rebuild and replace the water pump. He found that the smog pump was on its last legs and took care of that too. Not sure whether they were still using smog pumps when they made yours, but if so it is something else to ponder while you are in there...
