Re: Electric fan or Flex-a-lite?
I was considering the same thing you are now, about well I guess it's been almost a yr ago. I checked around and looked at the flex-alite electric fans they have one for s-10 app's I originally installed two hand me down fans and they gave me trouble so on the advice of weasle,and diver I spent the 200.oo and ordered the flexalite elec. It comes with it's own tstat and mounting hardware etc. I mounted mine right in the original shroud and it is wired to come on automatically, also whenever the AC is on. I have not had a bit of problem with it never overheats or even close, This thing sounds like a blower under the hood when it comes on!!! I can be sitting in traffic and the temp will rise a little maybe 10 degress ( normal) the fan comes on, and you can watch the gauge drop I recently installed a mechanical tep gauge so I can get really exact readings... Take my advice buy the best and only cry once, you will for sure feel the power increase also I'm guessing 10-15hp? Well good luck I'm doing alot of work on my Jimmy this weekend I'll post about my bushing replacment project on monday.
If it has tits or tires it will give you trouble.
