subman17 Yeah, I agree with you Tazz, I didnt like pushing those things through the radiator, but I figured "everyone is doing it right?" Anyways, lesson learned, plastic push through mounts suck.

I don't like pushing something through the radiator.

So I made a custom bracket to hold the fan and mounted it to the radiator shell mount itself and not on the radiator. I never heard of one leaking but I suspected one might and don't want to take that chance myself so thanks for confirming my suspicions!!!

Electric Cooling Fan Mounting

Hello all, Don't know if this is the right place for this, but here it goes.

I have a 1969 Chevy C-10 pickup with a SB350. I added a Weiand 144 supercharger a couple of months ago, and it wasn't staying cool in traffic with the mechanical fan and my 4 core radiator. Well, I switched to an electric fan and it fixed the cooling issues, and has been fine for about a month. Yesterday I am driving to the local car show, and I can smell coolant, so I stop and my radiator is leaking right in the middle of the core where one of those stupid plastic fan mounting things goes through the radiator. So, a new radiator is coming today, and I don't want the same problem again, so am I better off mounting my fan on custom brackets? Should I also move my trans cooler off to the radiator?(It uses the same plastic push through mounts) Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks!
