"Aux coolant fan"? You mean the radiator fan? Imploded how? The
bearings are both replaced quite easily, and with nicely over-spec'd
and super-weather-sealed bearings, for about $20 from McMaster. I
don't think the bushings are much of an issue either...
I think if you search the archives for "guide number bearing radiator
fan motor", you can find a post or two giving the guide number for
the bearings. Once you have that, it's just a matter of selecting
what grade you want and how weather-sealed you want them (double-
sealed I think it best, I forget).
Or, just take it to a shop which rebuilds electric motors- should be
trivial for them, just remind them that it's an automotive+outdoor
application so it needs properly sealed bearings.
