I got sunburned f last Sunday driving 100 miles, some in traffic, but at the end of the day, the 810 overheated as well. No wonder, it was up close to the high 90's! <!-- s:oops: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_redface.gif" alt=":oops:" title="Embarassed" /><!-- s:oops: -->
I had this in the back of my mind, but now i have decided that I want to go for the electric fan, not as a permanent ficture, but something that with minimum woork I can put on when needed. Anyone's experience with electric fans will be welcome. Which one works best? Can the generator take the amperage load? Best removable wiring? Any experience on the subject, will be appreciated. <!-- s:idea: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_idea.gif" alt=":idea:" title="Idea" /><!-- s:idea: -->
Thanks !

Aris-

The electric fan will only help in traffic or very slow driving. A lot of guys in the USA rig up one that will hang off the cross brace for the louvers and send air through the top half of the radiator. The brand here that offers a 6 volt unit is "Scott" but there are others. Most fellows make up a short fused harness that starts at the Startix and has a switch under the dash. The fan end has a quick disconnect plug. I also question that the radiator is really clean and has enough coolant flow? This is extremely important to the Cord.

Hi Aris,
I use a 6volt Kenlowe electric fan mounted the same way as Stan says,with a switch under the dash,they can also be operated by an automatic temperature control ,(supplied in the kit) they help with the cooling but are not the answer

Thank you both Stan and Barrie! I located the Kenlowe fans in England, quite a good site with full details. I am either going for two 8 inch units, or one 10 inch unit. In both cases the amps are 12 and I believe the generator will manage the load. The twin smaller ones have 1/3 more airflow, so it is a matter of measuring which solution will fit better. As Stan suggests, I will direct the air through the top half of the radiator.

Again, Thanks !
