P30 Electric Radiator Fan

I am looking for a source for a replacement electric fan (mounted on front of radiator) for a 1996 P30 chassis 454 Chevy Itasca Suncruiser. My local Chevy truck dealer says GM no longer provides this fan. The fan is an 8 blade (curved) black plastic with perimeter ring. Label says it was produced by FL Auto.

A lot of drag cars use electric fans also so you might try some hot rod web sites. If it's running hot you might try cleaning radiators bugs get in-between them. I had a 1994 34rq.

The motor is not running hot. The bearing in the fan motor has failed and the fab blade ring wobbling and is rubbing on the shroud. Thanks for the suggestion.

Try Autozone --- Hayden 3680 for $60. If it is a 12 inch fan, I replaced the new motor into the original housing, the mounting holes were the same . I even used the original fan. Had to splice the old connector on to the new motor wires. Take yours with you and match it up.

Thanks to all that replied. I found a replacement fan asembly (motor/fan/shroud) at NAPA. It bolted right in using original mounting lugs and bolts. It cost $125 compared to $500+ from Workhorse.
