I realize this is a old post but the topic and on going problems are not. Their seems to be a clear implication here that the 5.6l nissan V8 Hub will both bolt up to the GU TD42 Water pump and accept a G35 Fan. Unless I am missing something this is not the case unfortunately.G35 is a Nissan sports car - INFINITI Q45 QX4 FX35 FX45 models are identical in drive train.
E51 is a Nissan Legrand
US Armada and Titan 5.6l V8 fan clutches are an identical interference and bolt fit. US manufactured hubs are cheaper than the Nissan ones and are the OEM fit for Nissan US vehicles. They have a larger reservoir and larger surface area
So US Motor Works or Beck/Arnley hubs for the 5.6L will fit TB and TD's

Nissan G35's are normally black, Legrand fans are normal Nissan white
the fans need to be identical to above as the US also has reverse pitch fans which I assume are driven by a snake belt
The BMW 7 Series and Mercedes Alloy fan I tested require adapters. I'll eventually change over to the Mercedes alloy fan as they aren't going to crack and will survive deep water crossings etc - so they won't shear off or drive through the radiator like plastic ones can. (which is why the Unimog deep water kits include alloy fans - but ridiculously large price as well)
I'm sure there is a reason for going the esoteric route but am wondering whether the nissan family stuff was tested as well
yep, you've misunderstoodUnless I am missing something this is not the case unfortunately.
No I have not misunderstood , your post clearly comes across as fact and other post,s refer to this set up as plug and play. The web being what it is means this info has spread, it would be considerate to others if you pulled or corrected your posts re this set up.yep, you've misunderstood
the 5.6L hib was far too big to use in a patrol - that's why I never used it once I ran the measurements, it's also why I never ran further commentary on using it once I had one to test
the only way for ity to work was on an engine set back on the rails - which for 99.9% of people was not going to happen
but it was too big across the axis and the fan itself ran in the opposite direction (which is also why those models run centipede fan belts)
I was however able to mount the mercedes 450 alloy fan to the 5.6L hub - but as said prev. linear axis issues
I think I stated elsewhere on my other thread that the armada titan NV fan is way too big (apart from linear axis issues)
even if it didn't have a linear axis issue the diameter would chop up the shroud
You can call it what you like, but after 30+ years as an Engine Reconditioner I have adopted the practice of using plain and descriptive language to ensure no misunderstanding or confusion.what you refer to as (Length being distance from W/P to Fan mounting faces.) is what's called the linear axis
mate, one of the reasons why I stopped contributing to the forum was the self righteous attitude of some members. this wasn't the primary thread on the G35/C34/H34 fan adaptations (which were the principle fans under discussion)You can call it what you like, but after 30+ years as an Engine Reconditioner I have adopted the practice of using plain and descriptive language to ensure no misunderstanding or confusion.
Mate, don't let a minority of gong bangers put you off.mate, one of the reasons why I stopped contributing to the forum was the self righteous attitude of some members. I no longer have my patrols, so this is all
Mate as an unknown I'd never pull the X amount of years experience here. Not in any field.You can call it what you like, but after 30+ years as an Engine Reconditioner I have adopted the practice of using plain and descriptive language to ensure no misunderstanding or confusion.
