All my old invoice says is "fan after run controller".  But the price was
$117, which of course was most likely not discounted. The installation cost
was included in the hour of diagnostic assigned to the problem.

After doing a  little research in my Bentley Manual on p.97.242 I found the
official electrical system's name for this piece:  "radiator cool fan after
run controller unit", there is also a thermo switch shown.  Unfortunately my
old IPC catalogue doesn't list anything like this unit, so I ran out of luck
finding the part number. Hope this helps.
