Sorry, most of the run-of-the-mill factory-replacement clutch kits come with them;) Precision, Sachs, pioneer, etc.

Ew, I thought it was a rebuild of the old unit, not a replacement rebuild. Definitely check the input shaft as mentioned.

Yeah, the only problem with the Lincoln fans is that they pull so much juice they burn out standard Bosch relays, which are usually rated at 30A. Taurus fans are about the same. Never heard of a...
