So I got a "new to me" radiator from Ryker. Thank you Ryker! Well he brought it with an extra fan and fan shroud.. I was gonna go dual fans on my radiator but The fan shroud wont fit in between the water pump pulley and radiator.. is my front end crushed up too close or is this normal?? Do i need a special kind of fan? Mechanical instead of electrical doesnt seem worth it?? Is there a thinner pulley I can stick right there?? Thinner Electric fan? Suggestions??

You need an A/C fan, which is skinnier than the larger Grey fan. The A/C fan is black and you should have some plugs already wired in the brat to accept them.

If your brat was never intended for A/C it might not fit. Ive never seen one that wasnt though.

here you can see how the 2 fans fit. mine are closer to the engine because of the type of lift I have, but stock there is plenty of room....

Left side a/c fan from any EA81 should work.

I have the mechanical fan on my turbo car but I want to swap to an electric one. How can I wire it up and still have it operate in the stock manner?
