        Comments about Imperial Electric Fan 16" Diameter:

        Installed in 57 Tbird. Used oven thermostat, with normally closed contact, with capillary probe mounted by engines' thermostat housing and set temperature to run fan at 70 deg. C. and above. Used 12Vdc relay to control 8 Amp fan current when set point is reached, to keep fan current out of ignition switch, and to have the fan turn off when engine is shut down. Wired 25 A fuse per instructions to battery. Did have to build two parallel 1"x 1/8" steel straps with mounting studs welded to hold fan close to radiator without hitting the tubes or fins. Very satisfied with performance. (Usage is as a puller fan, mounted behind radiator.)

            Used to replace the stock fan in my 86' Pontiac Fiero. Replacement OEM units are rediculously expensive. This was a great alternative and seems to be working very well.

              This fan was listed as a replacement for my 96 mustang GT, but the fan in my car has a three wire setup and this fan only had two. The site should be more discriptive about its parts.

                Fan runs great, needed to purchase an additional install kit as the fan doesn't come with one. Fan was great but had some minor hiccups with the install kit. I used this fan to replace the existing mechanical fan as the fan clutch had gone out. The price of the fan and install (relay) kit together was less than the cost of a replacement fan clutch making the replacement decision easy. The fan comes with good installation instructions and proved very easy to install,

                    Although the fan is set up as a pusher fan, I switched the ground on the fan to a hot and the hot to a ground. This made this fan run in the opposite direction and made it a puller fan like i needed. It works that's all that matters.
