February 25, 2004My engine feels pretty hot after running it so I'd like to lower the temperature a bit by adding some electric fans. What kind of fans do you have and how do you like them? What are some companies with a good reputation?

February 26, 2004i don't have them but a lot of people seem to for power gains i'm not for sure if they cool better.if your worried about over heating install a aftermarket gauge that way you will know what your temp. is.
i ask a friend who owens a radiator shop he told me he could a used set and install it for about 100.
March 2, 2004I'm looking at installing one soon on a '72 F100 that i just bought, I figure that if it opens up horses it makes it easier on the engine so it shouldn't have to work as hard. SO.... it runs a bit cooler????
March 5, 2004one of the brands is,SPAL. some good deals can be found in ebay motors. good luck with your project.
March 18, 2004Call me old fashioned but I still love the standard flex fans. I heard the electric fans are the way to go, but I personally think they are ugly stuck up there on the radiator.
March 18, 2004For extra cooling mount one on the front of the radiator, and leave the stock fan alone.
March 19, 2004That's an idea.
I was told by a friend that the addition of a fan shroud will help me out along with an upgrade from a four point fan to a six blade fan. I'll try this out first to see if I notice any improvement.
December 4, 2005I was thinking of adding an electric fan to my truck. For now I'm budget and got the regular flex fan. But the guy at auto zone recommended dual 12"s over I 16" fan. I don't know if that helps any.
December 5, 2005Check out the web page for Flex-a-lite which offers up duals & singles which come with a thermostat and shroud. They just got into the radiator business too for classic trucks.
December 16, 2005The biggest problem I see is a lack of a shroud or the improper installation of one. This is the case if it is an electric or standard fan. When I used a standard style fan, setting the fan blade in proper relationship reduced the temp almost 20 degrees! I now use a dual electric setup that was purchased from the Fan Man in Stanton, CA.
This design forces all of the air to pass throught he shroud/fan area for maximum cooling. The best ever!
December 17, 2005The shroud made the biggest difference for me. Works fine. dual fans from Jegs
