Here's my .02 cents


Thank you for the info.
I would have given you a $1 for this!
It sounds like this is the way to go, though you raise some good concerns about the cons.

well i installed a electric fan from a 1998 sunfire and seems to be working fine. I just have it on a toggle switch but work good. Even took it out in some pretty severe terrain with no problems...

Post some pictures of your work!!!

Might want to put in a 95c-102c snap switch and relay...much safer.

SPAL ( like the one i used ) is a solution..
Also many AC fans can do the trick

you need it to be 16inch diameter
