[ltp] Seeking fan for T42

I just put the stock fan with dying bearing back in my T42 after I thought 
I had a good replacement.  This thing is ridiculous.  It vagely resembles 
the outline of the T42's fan, but is made of stamped aluminum instead of 
cast and the mounting posts are all off by around 2mm. The posts are also 
too thick to fit in the mounting holes.

Does anyone here have a good, verified, and reliable source for 
replacement cooling fans for the T42?
