Hey wadep96 - It's been a while - any Update ?

Did you glean any information from the Phone call to "Radtec" in Stafford
( or from elsewhere ) about suitable alternative Fans, that might be useful
for other Members experiencing similar problems in the future ?

Cheers  :821:

UPDATE ON MY OVERHEATING:
Replaced the fan, old was was good and solid tight, new fan working great.
Also replaced the radiator cap with a new one, old one seemed to have a damaged washer as if somebody cut one out to replace.
Now it runs at normal temp, fan kicks in when it should and keeps it in spec.
Thank you all for comment and assistance. Much appreciated.
Side note, the fans were/are connected in series so it seems (not 100% sure on this) both work or none work at same time.
Until next time, keep it right side up

Hey,

Yeah sorry about that been really busy of late.

In the end i took the plunge and got the one in the pics of ebay.

The part code after searching was VA31-A101-96A.

After spending a good couple of hours learning how to take the fairing apart, managed to get to the old fan, which had deffo died, to then find that one of the bolts had siezed, so with some persuation managed to get off and this one put back on.

It works a treat and no issues, spacing for the bolts and everything matched. The only diffrence i found was the wire was about 1/2cm longer than the broken one.

And so far has been spot on, i can hear both fans come on ok, and the newer fan spins freely

The two fans are connected in parallel to the relay output with a +12 volts and common ground for the two fans.
