I'm am working on kirby 508 and want it to be original as possible. I'm looking for an original 6 blade metal fan. I have 10 blade aftermarket fan now.
I also need gray original handle black wheels. The wheels I can get.
Lastly a Belden cord with plug ends I don't need original and nobody really has any so a Belden cord with plug ends would be a great fit and look.

While you might like your 508 to be 100 percent original as to replacement parts, I do agree with Ultralux88 that the 10-blade metal fan first used in the model 515 is a great improvement. The part number you are looking at is #1189S.
