FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Should I mount my electric fan in front of or behind the radiator?

If space permits it is always better to have your fan operate as a "puller" by mounting it on the water pump side of the radiator. A "puller" electric fan is 15% more efficient than a "pusher" electric fan.

What is the ultimate way to hook up an electric fan?

Use a fan wiring kit and a brass sensor for your water coolant temperature. You can wire a relay to turn the fan on at 195° and off at 175° or use an adjustable fan wiring kit. Cal West Auto Air & Radiators offers both fixed and adjustable fan wiring kits.

Is there any other way to hook up an electric fan?

Yes. You can wire a manual control switch and turn the electric fan on and off at your discretion.
