Vintage Air

Can a pusher fan be added in front of the condensor to help the ac system to work better.

Re: Vintage Air

My take is the condensor doesn't need help if all insructions are followed.
The correct size shroud, with the correct size fan blade installed in the correct position relative to the shroud, should be enough.

It is a closed system, and anything you do to minimize all vent leaks, window leaks, door leaks, good insulation etc, only helps the cooling efficiency.

Re: Vintage Air

Moving air past the condenser is essential to good cooling and long system life.

GM added supplemental pusher fans on tow vehicles.
Does that answer your question?

Re: Vintage Air

What set up do you have currently? i.e. factory 4 blade fan/shroud, size of radiator. If you are adding Vintage Air to a non air car, you may need go get a larger radiator, 5 blade clutch fan , etc. Personally, when I installed the VA setup, went to a larger aluminum radiator with dual puller electric fans on at 195 off at 180). Probably didn't need them for normal driving, but this setup really helps when it's 90 degrees, and you are at idle in traffic for long periods.
