Lights, Fans & Relays (Part 4)

I was never totally happy with the fan I fitted back in 2011 for 2 reasons. It was big fat and ugly and the fact it was pushing air meant the front mounting position in fact reduced airflow through the radiator so was doing exactly the opposite of what it was intended.

I bought a 7" version of the same fan, this time mounting as a 'puller'. It was a tight fit and only clears the water pump pulley by around 5mm.

Still not entirely happy as these fans a pretty unpleasant to look at, so will keep an eye open for a slimmer option off a more modern car.
