Re: Thermofan recommendations
OK. I have seen the EF -EL fans, but am told the BAs fit much better. I am waiting on pics to confirm, but having looked under the bonnet of a BA, the fans look really pissy and cheap. Nowhere near the quality or size (width) of a Daives Craig 16" blade.
I have always said myself that the standard fan is a bloody good device. But the idea of having that huge chunk of metal attached to my motor doing 6 grand or more no longer apeals to me.
I dont have the viscous coupling model, that came out on XDs or maybe late XCs, actually I think a few ZHs had them, they ran into the XD model life with BW diffs etc. Is it worth instaling the viscous coupling? I will need to get a different fan blade and but a new viscous hub.
Hey strokedxd, which model fans have you had trial and errors with and what were the problems? A guy in mu club has a 5 core radiator in a 302 XB. Car has no accessories at all (other than auto trans) and he complains about overheating. Yes he has a thermofan. The Permacool fan I had had a sensor that was held the the outside of the top radiator hose with cable ties! I think they have fixed this now. The crappy fan had blades that were made from pieces of sheetmetal with one edge folded.
