|Hi,Thought i'd share few pic todays' pickups
Being as ive never seen this fan in real Life and is in such good Nick ! [ i only seen in Galleries ]
Not cleaned, just drops of oil in the oil channels ,
and a super quite little gem
Blue enameled Badged ..
original cord and plug cord still no fraying at all
These fans are notorious for their paint loss ,to find one like this very lucky
and a very sweet runner ...
Is strange you may think , where's' the marelli
2 fans i had came across "small pics and badly listed" ...all i saw was a green marelli ,
with a old, Bombed black limit yuk !.
Talking to fellow countryman Jim , points out to me , green marelli on closer inspect is a oval vent ..congrats .
these vents i mentioned in a earlier post.rare
...small amount of time we spent yakin bout the Limit ,hey isn't a marelli
I Send a msg over to the UK ,Tony ,the man who knows his limits.... .
and as you can see , sure am glad i took his advice ..
So here's what i really went for a 4 hr drive to collect
and has a serial number
Marelli Green Japanned...oval vented Knob neck wall mount
this good to see if correct 1920
so all in all , 2 very nice fans
only few days ago ,i didn't have a green one to show in a previous post ....
fortunes change eh!
Universal is very misleading when talking marelli...
.i am slowly coming to the conclusion is a [color="#ff0000" style="font-size: x-large;"]model name . .
i will post more on this later ,catalog scan naming the fan in the teens and the big clincher is ,
most of marellis "Universal" fans are Ac brush motors , you switch to Dc and they double in revs and will get airborne ..
. in reality a Dc only marellis are not a common thing to find ,
pic previos design to the above models tab footed Triangle vents ....
hope your day is as good as mine ...find a fan !
