Default Re: Electric fans

Wouldn't it be best to have as much air flowing thru the radiator as possible for water cooling and also to reduce engine compartment heat?
Looks to me like that 3 hole shroud is blocking a lot of air flow, even with the 3 fans.

Why not run 1/8 in. x 1/2 in. flat steel straps horizontally across the radiator and then mount the fans on them without the sheet metal shroud obstruction.You probably could design the straps in such a way that they could hols all 3 or 4 fans.

Don't t the fans each have their own little shroud? That way you get maximum air flow to and thru the radiator for the fans for cooling your engine and reduces high temps. in your engine compartment. Anything that blocks air flow is not good.
