Pat,

 

The Behr (Bosch) auxiliary fan bolts to the Behr condenser with four brackets, two longer brackets at the top of the condenser and two shorter brackets near the middle of the condenser. Below are a couple photos of the fan with the condenser. And then, the combined condenser-fan assembly bolts to the radiator supports with four more brackets, two shorter, two longer.

 

Here are the factory installation directions:

Sub-section g. and illustrations 14. and 15. describe the installation of the condenser and auxiliary fan.
 

Best regards,

 

Steve

My Behr fan has those two attachments Steve shows to the condensor (C-shaped at top, short straight at center), but it also has a longer L-shaped attachment bracket BELOW those two (see open hole in fan in Steve’s last pic) that attaches to the front of the hood support brackets. They look just like the slotted L-brackets in Pat’s pic…

Thank you, Tom,

 

Yes, as noted, there are four brackets tying together the condenser and the fan, and four more brackets tying the condenser to the hood hinge braces — but I don’t have a personal photo of the latter. The illustration 15. I referenced, in the installation manual I attached, does show the brackets from condenser to the hood braces. I’ve been trying to find a working link to the Behr parts manual; it might show an exploded view as well as all the parts numbers. (The Behr manuals long hosted by the tii register are no longer available.) 

 

Best regards,

 

Steve

From the Behr parts manual, the brackets attaching the condenser to the hood hinge braces are shown in the first photo below, circled in red. And, not that I had any idea about this previously, the brackets changed for the 1975 model year, presumably continuing through the 1976 model year (the parts manual is a 1975 version). The second photo shows the parts numbers: “before 1975” and “after 1974”.

 

I’d return to the installation manual for a more useful view!

 

Best regards,

 

Steve
