Question Is there good metal or plastic fan replacement for the plastic D90 radiator?

British Pacific says they are out of stock on the plastic allmakes radiator fan. I guess I could order one from Rovers North but before I do that, whats a good replacement I can get locally at Autozone/pepboys etc? Metal or plastic, I'm curious if you guys used any aftermarket fan that will bolt right to the viscous fan clutch. Mine has a chip on it and its seen better days. Any help is appreciated.

So basically, we have to use a RRC fan & clutch and modifty with washers so it dosen't hit the fan shroud? Sounds fun. sigh...

Neil, you unscrew your two screws on your shrowd, there are washers on top and below there usually. Pull them out, and slide them all UNDER the shrowd, and screw them back in. Pretty damn simple.

nope, you would need a RRC clutch with the new RRC fan. The clutch can be found relatively cheap as a hayden product. but if you just need a new Defender fan and your truck runs fine I would try to source a used one.
