I did not know that some cars were fitted with two fans.
Some time ago I had a car which had one fan fitted but with the provision for an other. Then, in very hot weather, it began to get very near the boiling point I thought an other fan would help.
Fitted an other fan, just like the one shown,thinking it would be better.
This did not prove to be the case.When the car was not moving all was well but when traveling along the engine temp. was even worse.( The gauge was better than the Rover painted on type).
From this I concluded that all fans which are placed in front of the radiator are in the wrong place, they should be placed behind to suck air through it. This leaves the full area of the radiator to receive cold air when driving along, when the fan is no longer needed but allows cold air drawn in by the fan at low /stop conditions.
An other point, there is quite a number of fan motors which are failing, ( bushes worn out) Why ? when the cars are only stopped/ stood, running for a small % of the time.
My theory is that when traveling at speed the wind through the fin blades turns the motors most of the time and this wears the brushes down, even when not in use hence worn bushes.
This is just my thoughts, whay do you think?
