Default Model A or B Fan

I have a b engine and waterpump. I need to replace the fan. Does the model a fan fit the b waterpump. Mac's says it doesn't. Not sure why it wouldn't. Thanks

It doesn't just fit if you are restoring a Model B the correct fan is the one used on the late '31. It carries a different part number because Ford renumbered all of the parts even though they were identical to the previous part (not one of Ford's better ideas). If you are talking about the '33-'34 four blade fan it also fits and was the one the Green Bible listed as a replacement for 1928-34.

MAC's actually shows their 2 blade cast aluminum fan (A8600A) as fitting 1928-34. Their stamped steel fans show through 1931 only but I assume it is an error?

Can someone give a little background on the stamped steel fan blades offered. Are they more like the late 31 original?

They look like the cheap reproductions from JC Witney in the sixties. Nothing to my eye like the late '31 original. Are they functional, yes. They don't look anyway near as good as the Ford 4 blade fans from 1933-34. Check them out in MACS on line catalog,
