Got any situations where it wouldnt? And if you say on the hw at 60mph it wouldnt matter anyway.
Most aftermarket electric fans(Flexalite) will outflow a OEM electric and mechanical fan combined.Also if you have a flex fan they push almost zero CFM's after a certain RPM anyway.
Ever driven a jeep with the 42RLE?. 2500= ~80 maybe more
The Mech. Fan is more in play during low speed with more than typical RPM's anyway
Yeah thats true. I just assumed we were talking about the stock cooling since thats what the thread starter was asking about.
Sure a mechanical fan will pull real good up to 2500 rpm
but it pulls very little at 800 rpm
The electric fan will pull max cfm even with the engine
install an electric water pump and you could cool your engine
with it turned off
I have 2 fans on my TJ
oem mechanical and an 8" electric for the trans
but when I put the cooler on the power steering
it will cool tha also
Your coolant still circulates even after you turn the engine off as long as the t-stat is still open,not real fast but still moves until the t-stat closes.
I am talking good flow
not a trickle
This was discussed in length on another forum and if you install
an electric fan and water pump along with an adjustable t-stat for the fan but relay the water pump off of it then you could cool your engine after you make a long hard climb with it off
