Re: Thoughts on Mechanical Fan Please

Back in the days when I would hang out at my friendís bodyshop after work every day, his wife had a V6 Camry wagon and we were fixing the AC. When it came on, this fan moved a ton of air. I bought two at a parts store.

Also kicking around the shop was a Nissan of some kind and I discovered the fan shroud fit our big old radiators pretty nicely. As I recall, I had the round discs made to adapt the fans to the shroud. Itís how we did things back then when the aftermarket was pretty thin.

All worked well and I still use it today, half speed for low and full speed for high, triggered by the Fitech LS ECM. Each fan draws just over 20 amps at full speed.

The Toyota fan is from a 1988~1992 Camry 2.5 V6 car, it looks to be part number TO3113101.

The Nissan shroud is anybodies guess, I have no clue.

My point was that in my experience, fans with wide blades seem to move a lot of air. I also know big amperage draw = big CFM. How much CFM are my fans? I have no clue but they do the job.

If I needed this today, the aftermarket is flush with options, Iíd look for a shroud that completely covers the radiator, holds the largest fans possible and then choose fans that fit and have the highest CFM flow. I know this would be at least $400.00. I'm a frugal man (read: not loaded) and what I have works so I see no need to change it.

Re: Thoughts on Mechanical Fan Please

Which part is Toyota, the blades, or the blades and motor?
I would love to find something Chevy, or GM instead of an import (or even Ford/Chrysler), if I went that route, but I bet that works very well.

Re: Thoughts on Mechanical Fan Please

Anyone tried something like this? For those that have to have something of an American brand maybe this could work?

Getting ready to get the old bucket of bolts back on the road down here in HOTlanta and started thinking this subject over yet again. I know I MUST MUST MUST have something that can get the job done at low vehicle speeds and there is no way I am going to sit there keeping the engine RPM high with the gas pedal. Traffic is impossible here and getting worse every week if that is possible.

My 4Runner has a clutch fan, I can sit in traffic all day with the A/C on and nothing happens to the temp ...nice and soild at the same indicated temp it runs at on the highway or around town when there is no traffic (which is almost never). My wife's Lexus has electric fans and like the clutch fan 4Runner it has no issue sitting around in traffic.
