Electric conversion for conventional radiator fan
\015 My belt-driven fan clutch has gone bad. For about the same replacement cost, I can purchase an electric fan conversion kit. A 16" fan draws about 11 amps and the stock alternator is rated at 70 amps. The stock fan was 16" with a 19" diameter shroud. Will I need to upgrade my alternator? I don't have any other electric add-ons (hi-power audio system, driving/fog lights, etc.) on the vehicle.\015\012\015\012Can you tell me what size fan will work for me and how to avoid having to upgrade my alternator?\015
Shouldn't be a problem as the fan should only come on when the engine is hot, if you use a temp sensor switch
