Re: 91A-8600 Radiator fan

I measured the hub on my '41 Merc Town Sedan and it is also 3 5/8" as above. Puts the front edges of the six blade fan approx 7/8" from the radiator core.

Re: head Recommendation

I agree. I also still say that most flathead overheating problems can be cured with a properly functioning clean radiator.

Re: Mercury lights

The lights on the fenders are "parking lights" and don't work with the headlights on.

7" sealed beams are still available at auto parts stores but may be halogen.
