Classic Austin Mini Radiator Fan 6 Blade Tropical
11 blade plastic fan, one of the most efficient fans ever fitted to a Mini. This fan pushes a lot of air with very little noise. If you need more air, then please see part# 2A998 - that fan pushes even more air but it is substantially louder than this 11 blade version. <br>Make sure you fit the plastic blade the right way, the smoother moulded center faces the engine, which might look wrong to some people, our picture shows the side that faces the radiator. If there is an F or word "front" stamped on it then that is the side that faces the radiator. <br>Minis from 1959-69 and 1990-1 had 12G1305 a thinner blade 1.100 wide at tips whereas this is 1.5"<br>
The introduction of the Cooper S proved to be a testing time for the Mini's systems, but conveniently provide a guideline as to what the standard cooling system was capable of - that used on the 'S' was marginal to say the least! It wasn't uncommon for many S's to spew water from their overflow p

Take cooling off your worry list
One day I heard a boom and a small piece of yellow plastic flew out onto the road ahead of me. Pulling over, the fan was in pieces, fan belt broken and radiator leaking. The reason was I had left the vacuum advance line off the carb and not put it back, and it got sucked into the fan. Yup - just the little old advance line did all that. I took the opportunity to muck about with an electric fan instead of the engine-driven one but it didn't do anywhere near as good a job as this one. I still have the electric on a manual switch but rely on this fan for 95% of the time.
