Can I hang a fan off of my condenser?

I am going to bolt it to the body but I plan on hanging my ireland engineering fan off the top and bottom brackets of the condenser.

Is that too much weight on it? Will I break the condenser?

I am going with a 12x18..... It will squeeze in nice and tight.

On my 3.0CSi, I installed a parallel flow condenser that was part of a kit that came with a fan that was essentially zip-tied directly to the evaporator with pull-through zip ties. It's been fine for 15 years, but the fan is relatively light.

On the installation I'm doing on my tii, I ordered a real Spal 12" fan, and the difference of the size of the fan from the size of the condenser, combined with the weight of the Spal, made me bolt the fan to the nose.

But in general, I wouldn't be too concerned about bolting the fan to the condenser brackets.
