Electric cooling fans
#1
I am going with twin 12" fans, just wondering should I have them blow through the radiator to the outside or pull air in from the outside into the engine compartment

Pullers are generally better than pushers for radiator cooling.

Let me check your shorts!

Yes and make sure you use a shroud that covers the entire surface area of the radiator.

i'll second the puller fans. they are moooore better to cool. if u can get a shroud with the fans that's a really good idea, but if not then get fans with max coverage.

I have two electric fans: 1 puller and 1 pusher.

I Don't know if this is more effective than 2 pullers…
I'm thinking about reinstalling a 6 blades fan on the water pump and a fan shroud instead of electric fans...

It depends on how much of the radiator the fans cover, how much has air flow through it, and if you have a shroud on the puller side. Offsetting the fans would help to cover more area.

Hi

I made a shroud and squeezed in one 12 inch and one 16 inch. Works great :-)

+1 I run a stock fan with the original 73 radiator and shroud and have no problems at all keeping cool.
