As noted by others, beginning with the 64 models, the fans were magnesium --- HOWEVER, the 64 fan is unique because it fits the EM smaller fan bearing.

The 65-69 models (LM) used a bigger bearing and the magnesium fan was revised to fit.

BTW -- I will NOT USE a magnesium fan that has white powder on it --- the powder is magnesium oxidation (corrosion) and once that starts it compromised the magnesium and the fan can disintegrate during operation.
