Cool Help identify this flathead fan

Going through my stash of parts and for the life of me I don't know what this fan is for. Bolts to the head of the generator, measures 15-1/2 dia. single wide belt. Cleaned it up a bit and freshened the paint...."isolation" must really be getting to me now, I'm restoring parts I don't need! Or maybe my OCD is showing

Mounted on Ford generators all the way through 1939 Standard models, but NOT on '39 Deluxe and beyond. '39 Standard pictured! DD

The '32 thru '39 standard fans were all similar. You need to show a picture of the side view and maybe a measurement of how far the blade is from the generator mounting surface.

'33-'36. Later fan blades have a different shape on their ends.
