Re: Thermo/Clutch Fan

what model car are you going to fit thermo's to. basically the advantage is that the fan isn't running constantly with thermo's they are fairly easy to wire up too, check in the clevo thread there are a few in there on the differences between the two

Re: Thermo/Clutch Fan

Basically belt driven clutch fans consume more power than thermo fans. Thermo fans are also more effective at keeping a constant engine temperature. To convert to thermo fans is fairly straight forward, remove the clutch fan, mount the new thermo fan to the radiator and then wire them up. You need to find a way of controlling the fan, the easiest and cheapest method is to use a Davies Craig temp switch which mounts in the top radiator hose and allows you to choose what temp the fans turn on at.
