Radiator Fans (one idea on better cooling)

Recommended Posts

One thing I've noticed in Subarus of the '80s is that some like to run hot no matter what you do to help cool them. One thing that I found really helps is running 2 electric fans instead of one electric one and a pulley driven one. I also set them up so I can turn them on or off from inside the car, so they don't run all the time. Also, I swapped out the old plastic radiator for an all metal version, and that helped reduce the heat problem dramatically. Installing the second fan is pretty easy; all you have to do is pull the fan off the water pump pulley, then find another fan from another subaru, and bolt it on. Then wire up a switch and your all set to go.
