adding a SPAHL Fan

In another thread on Rennlist I commented adding a 6" diameter SPAHL fan to the cooler pictured ed above in the PET. Mine was an 86 as well, yet the fender cooler I had (same as the PET) benefited greatly by having the fan attached to it. My temps never go over the middle bar, even in stopped traffic and 92oF heat.

I believe there was technical article here on this Pelican site that gives you the step-by-step of the install. I had a few thermostatic switches left over from a similar install I made on my 53 TD and used that to launch the fan (185oF).

Anyway, that article gives you the electrical hook-ups to make it either thermostatically 'turn-on' or manually with a switch on your dash you can toggle whenever you get nervous about the temperatures.
