Electric fans

Soo I just bought one for my car and I only have about a 1/4" between the fan and the water pump pulley with no shroud and the fan is right against the rad. So is there a difference between putting the fan in front of the rad vs. behind the radiator?

I think it's better inside and the fan as a puller. But in reality I've tried both sides and they both to the job.

Yeah just reverse the leads so it rotates the other direction.

Unless the fan blades can be reversed. Mine had that option, so it's better you make sure that your fan will work properly as a puller/pusher!!! That's an expensive mistake to make....

Thanks guys I put it on the inside of the engine compartment for now it's pretty close to my water pump. I just attached it with those plastic zip tie looking things that push through the rad. Im going to make a shroud when I figure out how find space for it

I started with an aluminum shroud designed for my fan and widened the hole so the fan sat inside it rather than on top of it. Gave me an extra half inch or so. Probably won't help with your space issue since you're up against the rad already, but it might give you some ideas. I also modified the core support to move the radiator forwards about a half inch as well. It was a matter of gently manipulating the sides where the mounting tabs are to move them farther forwards. Not necessarily the most elegant solution, but it certainly did the trick. Between these two, I now have almost 3/4" space from the pulley bolts to the back of the fan.

I haven't done the electric yet but I was told you can move the fan down and to the passenger side for pulley clearance. It doesn't have to be centered.

That's what I was thinking about doing. I thought I could make it clear but the little ties don't snug it down far enough other wise it's working like a charm. I got this one and then the little controllable thermostat easy to wire and easy to control. Only down side was how long the temp sensor wire is

Procomp Electronics PC2054S 16'' Pro-Cool Electric Fan - "S" Blade https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003U7REDG..._fp6avb0BYVKCZ

Only question is, what should the temp be at?

Can't give a reference, but I've always heard the 200 cid likes 180 to 190 deg thermostat if you can keep it from going much higher in traffic. Trial and error to figure out how much to run the fan. Start at on all the time and back off a little at time if you trust your gauge.

Is it a probe style or threaded one? Not sure how the 6 is configured, but mine is threaded in right after the thermostat. So a temp above the thermostat is a good starting point - no need to have the fan on if the stat isn't even open.
