I was looking at putting a second radiator fan in the buggy and I noticed that if I used a second "stock" fan, I'd be hitting the front crank pulley with the fan housing :banghead:

Is there room for a second fan in a stock EA-81 setup? or must you move something or mount it differently than a stock type mount? I thought I mounted the radiator the same distance away from the motor in the Buggy as the stock Hatch setup?

Any dual fan folks run into this?

Might just have to go with a different fan. They make really low profile ones.

Have you looked at the EA82 electric fans? I *think* they are little more 'slim' than the EA81 electric fans. Might just be that little difference you need?

I'm using a fan off of an EA82 as a secondary on my '85 Brat. The 3 mounting spots on the fan lined right up with threaded spots on the rad and I just jumped the wires off the stock fan so it comes on with the thermo switch, works great.

You could also mount a pusher fan in front of the radiator. Summitracing.com has a wide selection of electric fans. I just ordered a fan and an adjustable controller for my car.

Use the fan off a EA81 that has A/C. Those fans are much thinner and bolt right up.

That's what I was looking for!

Having had no A/C in the past, I had no idea about the fan.

....Now to find me a fan....... :rolleyes:
