Default A/C condenser efan.....??

does anybody know where i can get a really small efan to mount as a pusher on my a/c condenser, to complement the puller on the rad. i've only got about 10 1/2 inches left to right and top to bottom (between the hood latch mount and the driver's side headlight). i guess what i really want to know is if anyone has done this so i don't go buy a fan and have it not fit.

I'm not sure if this will help based on your measurements, but I have a setup just like this on my Caprice. I got a pusher fan off of a 2001 chevy tracker and installed it on the left side of my condenser to help the a/c on really hot days while sitting in traffic. It works PERFECTLY but it measures 13 1/2" in diameter.

You could adapt fans from imports or other cars with the same size that you need just remember that to check the wiring on the fans before you leave the yard to make sure it works...

Then when you get it installed make sure you get the wires correct because an electric motor will spin in either direction electrically but the fan blade will only function in the direction it was designed for...one will be ground (-) the other will be power (+) and the plus should come from a relay so as not to shock your altenator to badly. The relay should get its feed signal from the A/C high pressure switch which only gets power when the A/C is on...

Hit a junkyard with a tape measure and carry a little socket set with ya... I fixed a friend's Honda Civic A/C and I THINK that fan was around the size you are lookin' for... or if nothing else... hit a motorcycle junkyard and get a cycle rad fan...
