Kit Masters’ HT/S-style remanufactured fan clutches feature vastly improved materials, compared to the OEM. Our Viton® o-rings withstand temperatures up to 400° and resist drying out. Dramatically stronger friction material sustains more fan clutch engagements and will not shear away from the backing plate.
The splined hub assembly in HT/S fan clutches must absorb the radial load from the fan belts and the axial load from the fan blade. Kit Masters’ dual bearing splined hub assembly transfers more of the load further down the fan clutch shaft to reduce wear on the front bearing. This equals extended fan clutch life.
Nobody knows how to rebuild a fan clutch like Kit Masters technicians. They tear down and rebuild thousands of fan clutches every year. These years of experience and our ‘better than OEM’ quality standards ensure that your professionally rebuilt fan clutch operates well beyond the 3-year/300,000 mile warranty.

No, GoldTop kits only rebuild Horton® DriveMaster® style fan clutch assemblies. There may, however, be a newer style remanufactured fan clutch available that can replace your HT/S style fan clutch. Contact Kit Masters customer service to see if this is an option. You would also need to change out your solenoid valve with this conversion because the Horton® HT/S style fan clutches are –air-to-engage” and GoldTop fan clutches are –air-to-disengage.”
The carbon material on your air cartridge is not mating correctly against the face seal that is threaded into the air chamber cap. Inspect the face seal and the carbon on the air cartridge. Look for any cracks or chips. Replace the air cartridge if needed.
There has been excessive heat from the friction plate wearing on the friction, causing the fuse to melt, creating an air leak. This is a preventative measure telling the truck owner that the truck needs to be serviced. Check your air supply pressure to make sure that there is a minimum of 90 psi, right at the entry point of the fan clutch. You can rebuild your fan clutch with a seal kit to replace the damaged seals and fuse once the air supply issue is fixed. You may choose to completely rebuild your fan clutch as well.
You are purchasing a Kysor-style fan clutch. When replacing a Kysor-style fan clutch, you must always replace the hub (pulley) bearings at the same time. Failure to do so will void the warranty on your fan clutch.
To determine the required bearing kit for your hub, enter the hub part number in the search field below, find the part number of the bearing kit you need on the dropdown below, or click on the 'Learn More' link below.
