Radiator push in probe.

Is it easy to ruin an aluminum radiator when pushing in a fan control probe?

If you're talking about the probe that installs between two cores through the fins, just be careful. I have mounted an electric fan to the front of the aluminum radiator in my S10 using long metal rods that came with the fan.

Hi, and thanks for your answer.
I think I was very careful when I installed the probe and the locking pin, but it's the first time I do it.

I have read about others that have runied their radiator from using just the method you describe to fasten coolring fans, så be careful. I would guess the weigth of the fan resting on the core could be a problem.
I would have considered some sort of support below the fan to remowe the weigth from the rods. Just a tip...
