I don't like how the idea the Lincoln fan draws a lot of amps. I put a fan clutch on the same vehicle that the Lincoln fan was on. I left the shroud off the fan and clutch setup. It seems like fan and clutch pulls more air even without the shroud. The engine does stay cooler longer. The fan and clutch are engaged all the time and is disapateing engine heat all the time. Electric fans will only disapate heat when they are on.

If properly installed, electric fans only run when they need to. I much prefer them over belt driven, easier to install on a build, especially with tight room, easier on water pumps. And no meat grinder when your tuning, especially those with no shroud.

Electric fans don't need to run all the time in cooler climates. In the desert you need maximum cooling at least 6 months out of the year.

How I mounted up the Volvo 2 speed relay

I found the bracket on a S10 firewall, I'm sure other Chevy's use the same bracket. I cut off one of the brackets.




I cut with the Dremel the lock tabs and the ears off of two brackets.


The brackets line up with the Volvo relay perfectly!! And lock on. You have another mount for the relay to break the negative lead from the temp. sender.


Front view.


I drilled another hole in the right side. and painted it.

Here it's mounted up
