Electric radiator fan question

I have a problem with hooking up my a/c on my 1929 ford model A tudor, the problem is that the electic fan motor is in the way of the belt... someone had mentioned to me that you can get a fan with the motor offset mounted on the top is this true and if so where could I find such a critter?

thanks,
simon

Simon,

The Fan Man sells a fan called the Sidewinder - I think that may be the critter you're referring to. It's 1 5/8" thick in the middle. I used one a few years ago on a '65 Ranchero. Worked perfectly. It wasn't cheap, but it got me out of a jam.

Here's a link to the Fan Man's products page. The Sidewinder is about halfway down the page.

Hope this helps.

Joe G.
