Radiator fan motor

I have a 2007 Tiffen allegro bus. The radiator fan motor went out about two months ago and my shop cannot find one. Iíve called Spartan and they said it will be first of July before I can get one. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Get the motor and you should be able to find information stamped into the metal. Do a general search and see if you get any hits. A good source for motors is a company called Whitehouse Products in the UK, but don't let that scare you, it will be cheaper even with Fx and shipping. https://www.whitehouseproductsltd.com/home

My coach is 2002 model and the have a replacement for it. I bought a new thermovalve from them in 2015, saved a bunch of money. https://www.whitehouseproductsltd.com/home

If no luck there take the motor to a good hydraulic shop, they deal with rebuilding or replacing these types of motors. Unless the gears are damaged or shaft broken chances are it is rebuildable with new seals and bearings.

Not a fan motor but I think the supply chain is permanently broken in some sectors. Older parts seem to need a higher back order number now before manufacturers will setup and run them, the new normal.


If you call a Spartan shop can they do a nationwide search? Have you tried to find a non Spartan part number for it?

Freightliner uses the same fan motor as our friends Allegro Bus.

It would be wise to have a tech make sure that the fan is the culprit and not a signal to turn it on.
