I am hoping to find someone who might have a 6 volt automotive fan than was installed on a dash board.  This would be destined to be installed on an antique truck.  The fan needs to be in working condition, but cosmetic condition isn't a serious issue.  Please let me know what you might have available.  Thanks.

Jeff, that looks pretty much like what I am looking for.  Except 6 volt.  Below is a picture of its new home.

I have a 4" by marked "MW" - No voltage noted anywhere. It has the Mount and in pretty good condition. PM me if interested and I can take some pictures.

John,


Hold that thought.  We are going to the Swap Meet in Chickasha next week in search of parts.  If we don't turn up anything, I may take you up on that offer.  Thanks.

Hey Kovar, I bet your bus was even shorter than that Divco...

Any shorter, the back wheels

Thanks for the heads up, Cam.  Unfortunately, that one is a vacuum powered fan.

Something like this?  This is a Casco 6v with rubber blades.  These pics are right after I bought it.  I have since disassembled it, cleaned it, lubricated it, replaced the wiring, and hooked it up to a 110v/120v-to-6v 3-amp converter so I can plug it in the wall and run it.  It's 2 speeds, but has to work to get going on the first speed.  More amperage might make it run stronger than it does with my 3-amp converter.  My next step is to recondition the rubber blades.  As you can see, it has the mounting hardware.

Dennis, I like that fan.  Unfortunately, I discovered earlier this week that  he is converting the old truck to a 12v system.  Good thing I didn't make a purchase of a 6v fan.  Sorry about that.  Thanks for your reply.

Hey Robert, no problem.  I wasn't really sure I wanted to let it go, anyway.   :D
Good luck with the truck.  I like it.

Dennis, I appreciate you sending that over to me.  That's a pretty cool looking fan.  As it turns out, I was able to make a purchase of an old 12v fan just this morning.  Thanks for thinking of me.

I have a 12V fan from my Dad's old boat - - 1970s vintage though, has a "safety" cage

Thanks, Steven.  I was able to locate one a couple of days ago.  Pretty much all of these fans seemed to have a "safety cage" on them other than the rubber blade models.  Thanks for letting me know.
