Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

Or you could always look at fitting spal tripac slimline fans or another brand in the same style, lighter, slimmer, easy to fit,  and has 100 percent more air pull imo :)

See Chillydog or Barrykearlly thread on here,   a good upgrade and not a very expensive upgrade either, plus you can delete the fan shroud housing also, so even more weight loss as the slimline fans sit straight on the radiator core   :thumbup:

It’s in my refurb thread, around page 16. Just one point, my fans are attached to a new frame. I would never hang a fan from the matrix, although I know some people do.

Thx all,  considering I’m not refurbing the rads yet.  What would people suggest I get to replace just the one that’s broken?  Can I get just the 1 11” fan and fit in existing cowl?

They're 80s Ford Fiesta fans Chris, there are usually a few on eBay. The mounts are riveted to the inside of the shroud, are easily removed, they are basic structures and easily repaired. The whole shroud/fan assembly is secured to the radiator frame by 8 self tappers (4 top, 4 bottom) and can be removed as a whole if required. FB_IMG_1487643956993.jpg.b13d47d8fd8f81c81ac63590aa997730.jpg
