Could you maybe, kinda, sorta help us in the 'my fan don't fit cuz I gotta 
235 in where a 216 was blues club' by telling us what brand name of 
aftermarket six bladed fan that you used?  I for one would really enjoy that 

My 51 1/2 ton had a 235 in it when I bought it.  Later my four bladed fan 
became a three bladed one because of metal fatigue.  I obtained another 
original fan and then realized that the previous owner had flattened the fan 
out with a hammer.  Soon after that my water pump took a vacation and never 
returned, probably because of the unbalanced fan that experienced metal 
fatigue.  I have had no luck finding a fan that would fit without doing some 
quasi major modifications to it.
