Post rad fan attachment?

I am running a push 16" electric rad fan and have attached it to the front of the rad using those plastic fasteners that go through the core. I havn't run it much yet, but spring is coming and I know it will be used. Are these good fasteners, and will they cause any damage to the rad?

They won't hurt a thing. But if you still uneasy about it. you can make a braket using 1/8 x 3/4 steel or aluminum. Mount the staps to the lip of the radiator and the fan to the strap. (2 straps top and bottom).

I always build brackets for fans. I reason is they are so easy to get off with brackets. the other reason is someday you will put AC in the car and will need to make brackets. So why not make them now and then not worry about it. ROY

I use those on my Beaumont and found that the fan has settled somewhat and damaged some fins. No big deal here but I would recomend brackets to make sure that the fan dosen't move around.
