> I currently have a small block in my 1949 Chevy and I have a large puller
> fan behind the radiator and a small pusher in front but I can't run the
> A/C because it wants to overheat.  I previously had a home made rig to run
> a mechanical fan which kept everything cool but the brackets broke twice
> so I figured it was just an accident waiting to happen.  The small block
> sits very low in the engine compartment which prohibits mounting the fan
> to the front of the water pump.  I have a desert cooler radiator and the
> electric fan is one the curved blade types.  My question is for anybody
> else out there is how do you keep your engines cool with an electric fan
> or is there an aftermarket bracket for mounting a mechanical fan.
> Remember I am dealing with south Texas heat and humidity.  Thanks for any
