Replacement Fans (UK Turbo & NA)

Postby Gordon » Thu 27.11.2008, 14:57

I've sourced what I belive to be an excellent replacement for the rusting Renault fans fitted to NA's, S1's and some S2s.

It's a nice low profile fan (half as thick as the metal renault one), 10 blades, rated at 80W, and a direct fit to the existing studs on the radiator frame.

A group buy has quite a potential impact on the price of these, so this is really to sound out interest.

If I can move 10 fans (5 pairs), the price should be around £60 for a pair (plus shipping at around £9).
They come with plain wire tails, I have cut the plugs off my old renault fans, solder-spliced them onto the new fans, and heat-shrinked the joint. Very neat, and makes them a direct swap.
I would be happy to do this for any potential buyers who wanted to send their (cut off) plugs in advance (for a small commision :lol: ).

I'l get some pictures on here ASAP (my radiator is off being re-cored at the moment), but as I said, this is really just to gauge interest at the moment.

Yep, I'll probably be interested too

I'm on the understanding that I can probably get as many as I want - I suspect the price won't come down much :oops: further though.
If we hit 20 fans, I'll try and renegotiate!..
I would also have to say that if we're going for a buy of 20 (or more!) fans, I'll probably need at least some money up front!

I'll try and put some pictures up over the weekend - of the fans themselves.
Hopefully I should get my rad back next week sometime, so weekend 6/7th dec might see them in place!

I've taken the liberty of changing the numbering for Ailwyn so that it'll be easier to keep an eye on how many we're up to (you know what it's like when everone jumps on board!)

Happy to pay up front, cheque, PayPal or Bank transfer :-D

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

Good find, but with the current exchange rate, plus duty ....

Yes, that could be an issue. I've no idea of the specs that are associated with the fans being discussed here so i feel like I'm sticking my nose in where it shouldn't be. But, Maradyne may be available overseas as well. All I can say is that these are great fans and I can hardly hear them at all when sitting in the car. They cool very fast and seem to draw less current. Anyway, just thought I'd through it out for consideration (or to get shot down :-D ).

:smt067 idea

Besides, it was nitroman that found them :wink:

I secured a pair of fans from Nitro a few years ago. When I came to fit them (during the ill-fated double engine swap), it became apparent that the fed fans are larger than those fitted to the UK and RoW cars.

Just thinking out loud here - Would this group buy benefit from one of the resident electrical gurus, stepping up to the plate and offering to produce a run of associated manual switches and wiring?

Cars fitted with Air-Bags (S.I.R) have a significantly different front end; AFAIK that includes different fans.
I'm not suggesting that these fans are suitable for cars with SIR.
