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.

Universal Relay for Fan/Horn
SKU-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.
