I'd agree with this. Had a '69 Camaro that had a fan motor with dried bearings. The resultant draw would burn out the dropping resisters in the speed control every couple of years. Problem was, you had to remove the right front fender to get to the motor (someone take that engineer out in the parking lot and give him a clue bat). Found it easier to replace the speed control in the dash. Didn't fix the basic problem, but it was less time consuming. Yes, you could replace the individual components on that board, but you really should find the root cause first.Though you might think your saving money buying the entire new cooling fan is the better option. Lets say you replace the faulty component only to have the other old parts fail but this time it overheats your engine and your out thousands of dollars.
