Rad Fans Bentley Eight

Got round to investigating very rusty looking fan housing through the grill mesh,the housing was really badly rusted so I have cleaned it all off as best I can and sprayed it,also inside the rad grille was very rusty,done that as well,looks a lot better now.Also found that one of the fan motors is seized up so really glad I went into the clean up.I will get a new single rad fan off e-bay now to replace the seized up one and fit it into the original fan housing where the old one was.Then ready for the hot weather come summer we hope.

Took it apart MIke.It was seized up red rusty inside,cleaned it out and used electric spray cleaner in there but no good,only about £15 on e-bay to get a single Fan so going that route.Dread to think what a Bentley fan would cost !!.By the way got a form sent by mail 2-nite for entry to the Rolleston on Dove show and entered the Marlin but John the organizer said it would be O-K to come in one of my other motors if the weather is a bit iffy,hope to see you there Mike.Graham.
