What's in the Box

These fans offer the best CFM vs. AMP draw of any electric units we have tested. All fans are made from glass-filled nylon and are rated at zero static. Each fan is also reversible, so it can be used as a puller or pusher.

To reverse the fan, the fan blade can be flipped or the wires can be reversed.

Fan Features:

  • Low amp draw
  • Mount in front or rear of radiator
  • Thin design
  • Reversible - push/pull

Catalog Correction: These fans DO NOT include an on/off switch.

Would be mounting 2 on AC condensor in front of radiator. How are these mounted. Would be using in 55 Chevy with condenser mounted in front of radiator only leaving 1 1/2" between post for hood latch and condenser so considering 2 8" fans with one mounted on each side as pusher fans on switch as only needed when in parade or heavy traffic with extended idle time. Car normally runs at 160 normal driving but when idling for extended period goes over 200. What switch would you recommend for controlling fan - only need on/off manual control to be used only in heavy traffic.

A mounting kit such as 10680197 works well. You will need one mounting kit per fan. A switch such as 9606618 or 91364380 as well as one relay per fan can work well. For this fan a 40 amp relay part number 91064109 is a good choice.

Universal Relay for Fan/Horn
(Part #91064109)
                        

This heavy duty relay takes the heavy-amp load off the switch, thus preventing an overheated circuit and a possible wiring harness fire. Works well with electric fans and horn circuits too. 30 amp relay.

The wiring for the relay is as follows:

  • Short Red Wire (from relay post 87) = power lead to horn or fan
  • Long Red Wire (from relay post 30) = main power supply in
  • Short Black Wire (from relay post 85) = makes ground connection thru a temp sensitive switch or a grounding horn button
  • Long Gray Wire (from relay post 86) = connects to switched 12 volt power (like ignition switch) so horn or fan turns on/off with key

Includes relay, circuit breaker, wire, terminals and instructions.
