- Feb 14, 2005You might verify the distance from around the edge of the fan blades
to the shroud. If it's too large, the fan will be ineffective. It
should be an inch or less all the way around. There is a GM 7-blade
fan available for mechanical use.
Investigate going to a thermostic controlled fan blade too. You
shouldn't need the fan above 30 MPH, so why give up the horsepower
and pay for the gasoline to spin it.
You could also install a thermostatically controlled pusher fan in
front of the radiator to supplement the mechanical unit.
Verify that there is sufficient ductwork and clearances to direct
air through the radiator and not around it when the fans need to be
You might also look into some kind of wetting agent for your
coolant, as this can make a difference in marginal situations.
