    Default New Fans Installed

    Since my original electric fans (Flex-A-Lite 210) ended up busting off some blades, mainly because I don;t remember checking the clearance when I reinstalled them after changing the rad.


    I decided that I should pick up the Flex-A-Lite 575 which are set up for the CJ7.

    Install was pretty straight forward. After opening the box, install the custom brackets.


    I went ahead and ran and covered the wiring at this point. I wasn't happy that FAL stopped using bullet connectors and started using really cheap butt connectors so I ended up removing the bullets from my old fand and spliced them onto the new ones. After setting up the wiring they way I wanted to I removed the bolts that hold the rad in, dropped the new fan assembly in and bolted it back up using the bolts for the rad.



    Being as I already had electric fans wired in I kept the adjustable controller the was installed for the old fans. I saw no point in changing out something that was already working. Besides, I plan on switching the t-stat housing to one from a 4.0 and using a threaded temp sensor later on. The clearance between the fans and the water pump was a bit tight (1/8" or so) for me so I opted to use one of the pull thru fan mounts to increase the clearance and ended up at about 1/2"



    It was an easy install except for lining up the bolts thru the fan mounts, rad and into those crappy speed nuts.

    As long as they work as well as my old fans that were rigged in there. They pull about 2500 cfm, same as my old, and kept me at about 195 even with the air temp nearing 115.
