That's pretty good to hear.  Makes a lot more sense than pulling them down and installing new fans.  Do you have any pics of them?

Hope it runs and dream it’s a 72”??
Ive been by this building numerous times, not until the other day did I notice the cooling tube, done a double take on street view and bingo! not very good pics so I snapped a couple more with my phone today. I’m going to see about getting some on the inside of the building. 

Update on the 363: got the hub soaking while I’m building a special puller as to not mess anything up. Got a few videos but haven’t had time to get those uploaded. Stay tuned this rodeo is just getting started!

You'd bag the elephant if you got a 72"!

Actually, that would be bagging a wooly mammoth, live, with nothing but a packet of peanuts to attract it!

  Haha 😂 I would just be happy to see a 72” in person. Dont know where I would put one. I’m going to guess they are at least 48”and If I’m not mistaken the building is on the historic register so whatever is in there probably won’t be removed. 
P.S. Does anyone know if a solution has been found for the blade bushing on the ilg box fans??

Definitely see if you can gain access to that building!  That would be great to see three larger ILGs all lined up out in the wild.  Andrew Block posted this picture a few years ago, both 72":


90,000 CFM  :up:

🤤 Wow! Now that’s a great find! 90,000 cfm? 😳 Better hold on to your hat. Hopefully there’s plans to save those one day if the opportunity comes about. No easy feat, but would be well worth it.

Definitely worth it!

I think I did some figuring a while back and.... if my 48W box fan were scaled up to a 72" model, the box would be 8 feet tall and 4 feet deep!!!
