Default Fan and mounting bracket for an M3A1 White Scout Car.

On ANZAC Day we had a slight mishap with my well traveled White Scout Car.

My son, Geoff was taking it to a town about 110km away for their ANZAC Day service when it threw a blade, broke the mount and put the fan into the radiator.

This is what was left of the mount, no sign of any weakness, just a nice bright snap.

The radiator is a bit knocked about as well.

I recovered the poor old girl with my 1977 Leyland Super Comet.

Does anyone out there have a New Old Stock Fan? I will settle for a good second hand one if it shows no sign of stress. Have a look at the fan photo and you will see stress cracks on 5 of the 6 blades.

Of course, I need a mounting bracket and a radiator so over to you all, so who has the bits I need?

Thanks Rick
