Twin fans on 8v radiator
Been thinking about this one for a while and seen the 16v rad on a Sud project.
I'm attempting to fit 2 fans on a 8v radiator.
Problem is that the left side there is not enough room due to the alternator and water pump.
If I can move the radiator forward a couple of inches then a fan can be installed I believe.
I removed the old bottom brackets to move forward, also made a couple of new clamps/brackets for the top support.
This top support will be cut off (not drilled out as I cannot find the right drill bit here and don't want to risk cutting one of the pipes).
I have made some simple brackets that fit nicely over the top of the radiator that will be bolted to the top rubber bushing once extended.
Bottom brackets have been bent outwards to lower the radiator as the top corners clash with the metal arc of the top frame!
Also the bottom water pipe outlet is a little long so this will be shortened so the pipe does not rub against the left side frame.
Some initial photos posted. I will make the drillings once my engine is back in so I know how much room I need with the slim second fan.
