  • Cooling Fan for the Model A Driver and Passenger

    I just ordered two of these fans. They only draw 1/2 amp at 5 volts, and are silent. I use them with my computer, but ordered two more to use in the Model A. I bought a couple lighter sockets that have two outlets plus two USB ports that can run the phone charger or these fans.

    Where do you run the lighter socket wires to hook it up?

          I clip the lighter socket to the starter switch and any good ground. The socket is insulated, so it can touch metal without shorting.

              Right now I just have a pair of alligator clips on the 2 wires, so I can unclip it when it's not in use, or move it between cars. I'll put a loop terminal on the wire ends later and give the socket a permanent mounting on the steering column.

                  Model A Charging Socket and Fan

                  Cell phones and GPS work fine on your stock 6 volt positive ground vehicles. Just make sure you connect the center contact of the socket to the positive ground. I bought some of the black insulated sockets shown on ebay for 99 cents each. The blue USB adaptor was a dollar at Dollar Tree. The USB and multi socket adaptor was less than 3 dollars, and will work on 6 or 12...

                  Unusual Fan Mounting, Not Model A
                  by Tom Wesenberg
                  Last night I saw an early 60's Triumph that had the radiator fan mounted to the front of the crankshaft.
                  So with this mounting, the fan only covered the lower half of the radiator.
                  This is the first time I can ever recall seeing a fan mounted directly to the crankshaft on any car....

                  Balancing the Fan
                  by 29er
                  I've never seen a discussion about whether the fan should be balanced before it is installed in the car. I have a repro 2-blade aluminum fan, but the question is relevant to them all. It would seem that the fan, like all other spinning things (wheels, lawn mower blades, etc) should be balanced so that undo stress is not placed on the water pump. There's even a thread by Tom W over at that other Ford...

                  Original steel fan blade dangers
                  by Mitch
                  Many folks in the hobby are unaware of the danger that lurks when running an original style 2 or 4 blade fan. If your car has one replacing it should be a priority to prevent bodily injury or damage to the car. The suppliers sell a replacement aluminum 2 blade fan that is well balanced and safe. Here is a link to some more info regarding the construction and deficiency's of the original style fan....

                  Is a cracked fan blade........
                  by Jeff/Illinois
                  ............even worth trying to restore today with the good quality aluminum blades sold by Snyder's and Bratton's?

                  I have one headed to the scrap pile if not. Also sounds like loose rust scale in the blade when you shake it.

                  28 rad shroud
                  by hb32
                  My 29 came with an original rad shroud that is not installed and so far no issues with overheating so wonder do I really need to install it. Should I hold on to it in case or will the 4 blade be sufficient? I would like a Winfield high compression head and seems that these shrouds are in demand. Comments welcome
