Dino DIY - electric radiator cooling fans same as Jag E type (308/328 too?)

I'm refreshing my Dino and the radiator fans are electric, marked "Lucas England". I'm not sure but these may also fit other series of Ferrari such as 308, 328, etc.

I searched around for replacements and found them as high as $300 for a single fan (ebay) but seeing they were Lucas products, I focused on British car suppliers. "XK's Unlimited" sold me these that are for a Jag E tyoe and cost $94 per fan and $26 per bracket. See the photos of the new adjacent to the old - I am very pleased!

Hope this helps others in need, here are the specifics for ordering:
on Table E132,

Fan motor p/n #78497

https://www.xksunlimited.com/xks/mer...d=11735&step=4
Fan motor mounting bracket p/n #78547-1


I'm new here, do owners create a running list of spare parts and where to find them?

I bought my replacement motors from XK Specialties, and they fit like a glove.
They were considerably cheaper than putting a Ferrari repacement in, and they are the same thing.

I wanted a better fan than I had, and since I work for GM, I put some pusher fan blades on that were for a Cadillac SRX. I just had to 'massage' the mounting collar the smallest amount and they slipped right on. When I get pictures, I will post them.
