Default Electric radiator fan 1960

Larry, we just had this discussion regarding electric fans, alternators, etc.. I just put a new tech tip in the Technical Resource Library under the Alternator & Generator section. Look for "Selecting The Right Tbird Alternator" in the Final Dress section. If you are going to add an electric fan, and necessary unit to control it, you may as well install a 130amp alternator or more, and be done with it. That way, if you add anything else electronically that is going to demand more power from that alternator, you will not have to worry about replacing one that has a much smaller amperage output. Read all the information on alternators in the TRL. As for the electric fan, Dave Dare and others can tell you what to look for, as he and others have electric fans on their cars.

Read through this article also..

And this one also. Ryan got an electric fan setup from Cool Craft, I think it was..
