Default Looking for a bolt on single replacement fan, anyone sell one?

Looking for a fan that will bolt on to the mounting points of my TSE radiator.

Bolt on. Need something that definitely works and quick, need this so I can get to college. No fabrication here.

FM doesn't seem to do anything, or TSE. Just get another stock fan? It's funny that going to engineering classes makes me not want to deal with fabrication...

Why not use just the stock fan?

because he wants a cheap aftermarket fan that doesn't work as well as stock or bolt directly up because drilling a few holes in scrap aluminum strips is too hard.

The TSE radiator puts the stock fan housing into the rollbar.

If I were to upgrade the rollbar (increase diameter) from stock, I'm not sure if the blades themselves would contact the bar.

So lower profile would be nice. Less weight would be nice too.

I didn't think the OEM fan was that large. But I guess the TSE radiator is massive. I have never seen an OEM direct replacement slim fan.

It's not that large, but it's much, much thicker braced at the edges.

Just went ahead and got a new VDO.

Some plastic trimming and it works.

Yay no intention to increase roll bar size.
