Does anybody have a link to a tutorial (I think it was from another forum) on the installation of the spal fan.
I used to have a hard copy but that cannot be found nor can I find the original post on the net.
It gave detailed instructions, photos and even provided a template for the mounting bracket in a pdf. I think.
I know there is lots of stuff about the fan installation  but this particular one was easy to follow

I recently bought and fitted a similar Spal fan with mounting bracket - bought from Motorworks.

The only niggle was that the bracket holes had burrs and some of the edges were almost razor sharp. A few minutes with a fine file sorted that.

Here is the link to the procedure I used when I replaced my fan that had totally melted it's brush holders.  Go to reply #18 December 20, 2014  There is a good description and nice pictures.

By using the old mount with the new fan the whole job took me just a couple hours, and the finished job looks like it came from the factory with no need to fabricate a new mount.

Years ago I did much the same with a Davies Craig (DC) fan. I cut off the OEM fan motor mounting arms and found that one of the concentric rings on the DC fan lined up with the cut down OEM shroud. I cut away the surplus DC shroud I then made up some stainless steel straps (Bandit) that went over the outer ring and attached it to the OEM shroud with rivets. A 1/2" spacer had to be made out of 6" PVC pipe to allow the blades to clear the radiator. The OEM blades were fitted to the DC motor shaft. Being a fully sealed motor eliminates the need for any maintenance and it's not subjected to water and road crap. I also fitted a override switch at the same time. It's now been humming away happily for 20 years.
Regards Martin.

Following on from .7-5's post, here is a direct link to the post showing how one owner installed the Spal fan without the need for fabrication of a new mounting bracket.

That's a lot more work than my "fabrication."
