Any of you guys with a 100-4 have an electric pusher fan installed behind the front grill?(in front of the radiator) If so, what size fan are you using and please post pics of how it's mounted if possible. Thanks!

keith, i have a 100-6 so space limitations may be different. i use a puller fan on my sbc motor. using the sbc short water pump and off- setting the fan gave me just enough room to clear the fan assembly. i had a bj7 and it had a pusher fan as you are mentioning. it worked very well at lower speeds and slow driving. but, it did seem to block some of the air flow through the radiator at interstate speeds. on a long drive on a very hot day temps might get a little higher than you might wish....i dont know as there are so many variables involved. if you can find space for a puller i think that you will be much happier. i used a 16 inch fan as that is the width of my radiator and i do not have a shroud. good luck!
