Let me see if I can get you a part number, Pulse racing in Jax runs Spal radiator fans on their builds (Mostly Caymans I think) and they would give me some part numbers, I just never got around to asking. I'll try and do it today...

Are you asking what the diameter of the rotor on the radiator fans is? It looks like 10-3/4" on the inside. You should probably just remove your bad one now for examining and measuring exactly yourself if it is not working anyway.

Are you 100% sure fan is bad?

Hi/low ballast resistors are known to go.

You may have been missing low or hi for some time but didn't notice until both are now gone.

I'd test the fan directly first and then resistor. Replace only what you need.

Good luck
