I would talk with Jim at source engineering in oregon. They make a quieter fan that gives a little more hp with no reduction in cooling. I had to replace the fan on my 07 neptune with 325hp cummins a few years ago and went this route. Much much quieter and was only a few bucks more than a standard issue fan.

Go to the Cummins Quickserve site

https://quickserve.cummins.com/info/index.html

Once you register you have to put in the SN of the engine. Once you do this you can search for any part that was originally mounted by Cummins. I've used this site to source the correct exhaust manifold for my coach and also have a number of common parts saved in my files in case of emergency.

Once you get the part number you can do a general internet search for a replacement fan. I usually check Ebay, Amazon, and a general internet search to get price and availability.


You may also try and removing the old fan and see if there is identification on it and see if you can buy an alternate source.

I agree with Chad... I got the Source Engineering fan two years ago and it is much quieter!

Went to the Cummins site, no fan listed for my engine. Must be a Monoco installed item. Contacted Source, wow! Would like to look for alternative supplier.

Not a hard job. I replaced one on our 2004 Cayman through the floor in the bedroom closet. Four bolts and about 20 minutes, spent over 2 hours preparing and cleaning up. To make the job easier clean out the closet, remove the doors and Lay out drop cloths to protect the area around were you will be working in.

Can you get your old fan off, you might find manufacturer and part#. You could measure fan blade, hub, hole pattern and see if you can find an alternate source.

Another options would be salvage yard, Visione Auto Mart in KY might be able to help, it probably be ~65% of new.

The source fan will give you a mileage improvement too. It may be a bit pricey but has been so worth the money on my 400 ISL. I could not hear anything while standing behind my rv. It is so much quieter now.

I have a 2003 Neptune with the same engine. Bought the source fan when I replaced the junk aluminum radiator with a source one. Made a huge difference in noise reduction and increased MPG by .8. It was money well spent.

Silly me, I called Alliance Coach in WIldwood Fl, they called Monaco, didn't know they were still in business, got the part number and ordered in. I did this after waiting two days for Jim at Source to call me back with availability of their fan. Original $165.00 plus $55.00 3 days shipping. Source was $550.00 plus shipping. That said I was ready to do the Source fan but needed it now.
