Hi all, and happy new year.
Has anyone fitted an electric radiator fan? If so what do you think of it? The principal behind them seems sound.
Cheers Tone.

I've fitted two to my series V. The only thing I would strongly suggest is to have supports professionally soldered to the header tanks to fix the fans to. The cheap/easy way is to use the long bolts straight through the core fins, these can sometimes rub holes in the tubes.
I had mine mounted on the forward side of the radiator so you can still have the original fan in use as well if you so wished.
