I have (or had) two 501s that had the Tandy "upgrade." A very cheap
permanent magnet can motor with a real cheap stamped aluminum fan.
I have tucked a 1.2" CPU cooler fan in a 501. It is the voltage regulators
that need the air flow. They were a little under cooled for running two
drives. I tapped the fan power from the 12 volt line for the drives.
They made the 502 case even cheaper. I don't recall just where a fan could
be hung ATM.
