Subject: radiator fan DB3ltr Lagonda
On the way to the last Contintental Rally (to Friesland this time) after 300 km (of 2000 total) crusing on the motorway we suddenly heard a loud chattering noise and something disappearing under the car. After stopping at the side and some searching I found the radiator fan missing completely. 1 Blade had disappeared and 4 were in the radiator shroud. Luckily it had not destroyed the radiator and we could continue our rally on the electric fan and with moderate speed (motorways uphill in hot summer caused need of frequent refill of water). The inner ring of the fan is quite thin and I assume it broke because of fatigue due to vibrations.

Now I am looking for a replacement fan. Who knows what fan (of any other car) could fit?

Or who is runing his DB3ltr Lagonda only on an electric fan (which model? mine is to weak to do the job allone) What current is it pulling (I fear constant electric fan +night driving is to much for the standard generator)
