Spal Electric Fan

Need to know if the Spal fan I had installed on my Bucket is correct. It is mounted on the engine side of the radiator (a puller),and when I turn the fan on I can feel air flow towards the engine. When I look at the blade shape they are curved. The rotation is cw looking from the engine. BUT the P/N on the fan says its a VA10-AP6-61S (pusher). The air flow is going the wrong way for a pusher, so, is it okay to reverse the wiring and make it flow air as a puller? My concern is I think the air is coming off the blades backwards and I am getting reduced air flow. Any help would be appreciated.

The curvature is to reduce noise, not increase efficiency. Either way is fine.

A simple test to see if air in going through the radiator, hold a towel in front of the radiator and see if the air draws it to the radiator.
