A how-to(for the original MTS Glaciator) was on OCer's.com's front page. Trouble is, I dunno if it made it into the "Guides" section. You might use the "search" feature. If I remember right, the "funny" fan inside the Glaciator is epoxied into place.

I think it would be an excellent idea to have a new 33cfm 60mm fan handy if you try to remove the Glaciator's built-in fan. The spare fan needs to have a lot of its frame removed for proper use inside the Glaciator, too.

I personally wouldn't try it. Between the epoxied fan, and splitting the 2 parts to the unit would scare me.

Good luck, and be careful.

Just part-fill the acid bath so that it comes close to the top of the fins, but doesn't touch the fan mechanism. And lower it in gently. And leave it to dry for a few days. Um... that'd do it

I've pulled the fans out of my glaciators. I just put a small screwdriver underneath and popped it off. The oldest one that I had was glued in. The other 2 were held on by a sticky pad. I applied a dab of liquid nails to the bottom of the fan that was glued in and reset it and let it dry. The others I just stuck back in, although the sticky pad strecthed a little and one has a little piece torn off, but they seem ok. They've been running that way for months.

Some acids can discolor the copper. It's probably easier to use a polish or ultrafine sandpaper.

People have recommended vinegar for removing oxidation from copper surfaces. Bought a bottle, but installed the Glaciator before lazying around to brightening the HSF. I never thought I'd install what seemed to me to be a better anchor for a small boat than a HSF!

The business end of the Glaciator(I have the original one) came protected against oxidation, with an oiled piece of plastic covering it.

I have no oil other than olive oil in the house. Does using this in place of a light machine oil seem OK?

cloasters, it will be fine, as all u want it to do is seal the surface from air

phosphoric acid is what is used in the aero industry for cleaning copper, its same acid as in coca cola, try dropping a manky old copper coin in it for a few hours
