Cool Fan

I just bumped into a fan from a olds cutlass diesel. I know!!! The mounting arms line up with the supports behind the grille. I revesed the wires to make it a pusher. It has tow speeds and a heat sensor for automatic use. I wired mine with a switch on high. Its hard to stand in front of the grille. It will darn near pull a T shirt off of you.

It was a puller in the Old's. It has a temp sensor on it for the muliple speeds. I wasn't intrested in the auto on off and speed function plus I needed to reverse the rotation so I have it on a toggle switch.

IIRC electric fans only move about half the CFM's that the stock fan will. Could be a problem if you tow.
