    Putting a rebuilt 258 in my 79 CJ7. New motor didn't include a fan blade and the old blade doesn't fit (it has a spacer on the back). Tired ordering a Crown repro (
    Crown Automotive Mechanical Fans 52002171
    4 blade model) but none available until Christmas. No 258s in local junkyards.

    Any ideas on what might work or source for the blade?

    Would a fan off an XJ or yj work?

    I'm not sure the engine has a newer manifolds (with a water jacket). I've been surprised at the number of changes made to the 258.
