ok, ive been reading a bit, and going through the threads, but i cant find the answer to my question.... maybe there is no answer.....

would a 16" thermo, in the original V8 shroud, be better than fitting the VT twin thermo fans?

or would the EL fans be better than both those above?

or would you say keep the clutch fan?

this is in a VH 253.....

cheers

thermos/electric fans are always gonna be better than a mechanical/clutch fan, as long as you have the sufficient size... but as for the difference of the ford and holden thermos, i too wanna know which is the easiest to fit to my ride...

it depends if you have auto cooling lines or not if you dont then its simple if you do it can still be done just a bit of cutting and bending

ok, sounds all good...
Ill get AU ones, unless anyone has something bad to say about them....
and if anyone out there has done it, i would love to see some pics of the finished product...

how much cutting and bending are we talking.... and should i be able to do most of the mounting on the radiator frame rather than threw the radiator?

will they need to be mounted upside down?

do you reconmned running a thermostat switch such as a davis craig one.... that taps into the top radiator hose?

cheers

the in hose thermo switches are fairly reliable, use it to trigger the relays for your fans, but wire it up in a series circuit so you get full power to both fans... as for the temp sensor in the radiator hose, make sure it is sealed well, i had one start leaking before...

Yeah you may find with the AU fans that they will hang out a little past the radiator letting alot of air past.

Ford Mondeo fans are the way to go and fit alot better.
