I need to replace one of the 2 speed fan that mounts above my dash on my '91 Hawkins. The fan is gold/brass colored and is manufactured by A&E Systems Inc.
The problem is I cannot find the same color and size fan and I have not been successful locating the manufacture.
I have found chrome fans that are slightly larger and have their switch mounted to their base. (My Hawkins has a dash switch for each fan with a rotary switch next to the fan for low or high speed.)
I know I can buy the chrome fan and modify the switch wiring but that would mean replacing both fans which I'm trying to avoid.
Does anyone know of company that has the fan I want?

Thanks. Paul

Have you tried any of the RV salvage yards? Try doing a google seach for RV salvage or surplus companies. Good luck and keep us posted on the progress.

Paul,I'm cheap(so says the wife). I replaced the ones I had with two of the fans from Walmart that plug into the cig. socket. I cut the wiring and spliced into the existing wires leving the 2 speed switch. It take 5 minuts each and costs less than $20.00. Looks like the original fans.
