Series II E-Type Cooling Fan Plastic Shields

I successfully removed and replaced the left square cooling fan in my 1969 E-Type FHC after the fan died on me a few weeks ago. The right side cooling fan failed about 10 years ago, so I was familiar with the removal and replacement task. I sourced the new unit from SNG Barratt in New Hampshire for $231.30 with no core exchange required like Moss and Welsh required. The replacement unit looked identical to the original fan motor from the exterior and works properly so far.


I am looking for the black plastic shields that cover the terminals at the rear of the radiator cooling fan motors and couldn’t find a part number in my parts catalogue. The shield should be located in the area circled in red in the first picture. I was wondering if someone on this list knew where I can find these shields.
Both of my fans had the remnants of the plastic shields on the rear bolts, but nothing more. When I replaced the right fan years ago I couldn’t find the black plastic shield so I made a temporary substitute out of a milk carton and it is still there, although it looks out of place as shown in this picture circled in green.

In the meantime I will sacrifice another empty plastic milk jug until I can find a source. It appears to me that the shields protect the terminals from moisture and that is helpful to have here in South Carolina as I drive my E-Type almost daily including in the occasional afternoon rain showers.
Please let me know where to source these shields if you know someone selling them.

Not all the usuals carry them, but some do.

They are C.28144 (LH) and C.28193 (RH). They used to be available from the usuals. There used to be a template somewhere on this site. Here is a pic. The texture is on top.

Appears from picture ….that thes are just flat plastic…… make them up with some 20g aluminium and then bend if you think necessary …they don’t look too hard to make….unless your car is concours

SNG Barratt has them

I took the remnants of mine and built a model of my best guess and 3-D printed them from ABS. Seem fine so far.

Wow! Ed Baumann, Richard Liggitt, Danny Lee, Denis Donohue and Doug H., thank you for the great replies. My 1969 E-Type is best described as a scruffy driver, so concours is not a concern. :wink: Although I do prefer to keep the car tidy, complete, and correct if possible. I will try to make these up from the images provided, but if that doesn’t work out I have the part numbers and SNG Barratt as a source. It appears that they are in stock and at $27.77 for both of them it won’t break the bank.

I have enjoyed being a member of this list for the past 20 years and this is an example of why. :grinning:

I purchased a piece of black ABS plastic that was textured on one side on eBay for about $6 US, cut out the shields with my jigsaw, heated them up with my heat gun and bent them to an acceptable shape, and installed them. Attached are some pictures of the process and how these shields now look as installed on the cooling fans of my 1969 E-Type FHC.






This was another successful project made possible and affordable with help from Jag-Lovers. :grinning:
