Old, original Hubs require regular service and oil to maintain lubrication and smooth operation. Neglecting your original Hub is asking for trouble and could seriously harm your fan and radiator. The Drake team took the old original down to the bits for a thorough examination and designed a worry-free, no-service-needed unit with modern sealed bearings and a top-grade aluminum body with a high-strength steel shaft for years of dependable service. There is no better unit to keep your fan spinning and flathead running. Includes fan-mounting hardware. Patent pending.
