Default Stupid fan question!!!

Are the fans supposed to blow air towards the rad or away from the rad?

Talking Oh no Joe

Right about the stupid. But someone had to ask hey? Suck, not blow.

Wink sucking, blowing and swollo.....

Joe;
the Muzzys will always pull air through the radiators.....but there could be a clearance problem, if they are on upside down.....the pitch angle doesn't change ......its like a bolt from either end, its still a right hand thread

sold my pair of Muzzy fans to MVista, i only need the upper one .....oil cooler is going in, in place of the lower with a Ducati fan on it and Lee's 2nd fan on the upper radiator....but without his switch mod.....

Yeah & they are crap - can I get a refund?

Actually the whole thing worked out a treat - ceramic coated headers, muzzy, impeller & engine ice. +1 on the clearance problem that Noel spoke about if they are the wrong way, so you really can't get them wrong because you'll realise it once you spin them.

Thanks again Noel

The only way that they will blow instead of suck is if you get them to spin in the opposite direction which you can't do by simply bolting them in.

A lot of women I know already have their wires crossed. Reversing them again would most definitely end in disaster.
