    Wanted to post before the radiator went in. Sent my fan clutch out to be redone. Great job. Not just the gold dichro color but the entire rebuild. Important to have the fan working correctly

    Don Kirkconnell restored and rebuilt it. Yes he is known for his work with Corvettes. He offered to put the stamps on but was unsure about the Buick codes. Date codes should be the same.

    Most of the Buick codes began with B. Didn’t you remember what was there before? Do you have a build sheet fir the car? It’s often on that. What year and Engine?

    Frank is right on the date codes being the same.

    Original paint codes long gone. 70 Stage 1. I can get some ink stamps made. But I put in the radiator last weekend

    This is the engine from my 70 GSX. I was able to find an Assembly line correct part number NOS GM Fan clutch for it. This is correct for a Stage-1 with AC. My car did not have AC but I figured it would be fine which it was. So correct code is BH for this application.

    9C745919-274D-4934-8066-B6E4E27FFE2B.jpeg This one appears to be about 3/8” for BH. Date code is a different style and size than original. I am sure you can get an idea from my original for date code. Both two letter codes look about same size.
