Hi everyone,

                         I hope this finds you all well.

I would greatly appreciate feedback on whether or not this fan motor looks compatible with a TR4.  Smiths unit FHM4342/01. 06/86 possibly [long shot 06/66]. Does it look a good bet?

Best wishes    Willie

Hi

Unhelpfully - I recall swapping the fan motor on my '4 - but with a modern substitute unit from (perhaps) Revington/Moss. It was designed for MG, but of course fits. This was eons ago, but it did literally blow the originals' gentle breeze away. In other words - a demister that demists. The down side was the Mortgage level of price.

That fan looks a lot like the one I pulled out of my heater box.....

i replaced it with a SPAL fan, a much cheaper approach than some of the commercially-available upgrades. Details are in this thread:

Maybe the rest of your car hasn’t got enough rattles or knocks :) 

mine is great - although I did use tight-fitting closed-cell foam all round the fan as shown in the second-last photo (30th May) on page 2 of the thread - so that could be helping.

Hi Roger,

I figured that anything moving inside a thin-walled tin box should be cushioned, and i didn't fancy taking it out again too soon :)  - i think i used 2mm thickness and just trimmed the width so that it was a nice snug fit throughout the circumference of the fan casing - it will be very obvious when you take a closer look and the photograph i provided should explain better than my words.

cheers.... Andy

You've probably replaced it by now but just in case, yes the fan motor looks pretty much identical to the one in your pics.
