Electric Fan Install!


Recommended Posts

So I used Lee's brackets, picked up a Spal 12" Hi Performance fan with curved blades, had The Fan Man make a temp sensor pipe so I wouldnt have to put a sensor in my radiator and started wiring! Took me about 6 hours total...no pics, it was getting dark and I was trying to get it done! It kept blowing fuses, they were 20 am...I guess the more powerful fan was drawing more current...rechecked all wires, threw in a 30 amp and it worked like a charm! Put in a indicator light in the center console and a manual bypass switch. Still have to mount the switch, but all is working perfectly! feels like I gained 20 HP! Just kidding...no power increase, but the engine is quieter even with the fan on...It comes on too late for my personal tastes...but if I went with a cooler temp switch it would bee on all the time....so I will live with it for now, but maybe a programmable fan controller is in my near future! Its a nic upgrade. Lee's brackets were absolutely PERFECT. Nice work. Made the job pretty easy. The wiring diagram on the FAQ is what I used to wire. Pics to come!
