Re: electric fan ideas? one fan wired to push & pull?
Highfill, that's an interesting point about pulling hotter air from the engine compartment forward, and undoubtedly true. On the other hand, every tractor and piece of construction equipment I remember noticing had a 'pusher' fan on it. Probably to avoid blowing the heat over the engine and towards the operator. Construction equipment usually has a more open engine compartment, so the air the fan pushes probably isn't as hot as it would be under a Jeep hood. On the other hand, it would be a lot cooler under the hood of a crawling Jeep if the air were going forward.
