Hi all,

>From my days of working on MG's for a living in '79 and '80, I remember these
fan motors being unreliable even new.  Since they're expensive, crummy, and
nothing special, there must be a much better replacement.  Has anyone gone
looking for a 12V motor to replace these?  Does anyone know of another make of
car that has a similar fan setup?

Just wondering.
