I'm getting ready to install an auxiliary electric fan and was wondering the best place to put it.
It's only about a 10" fan, and will have a switch inside the cab for when it get's hot I can hit the switch. Later I will install a thermo switch.

* Should it go in the top corner where the hot water is coming in?

* Bottom corner where the cooled off water is going back into the block?

* or in the center (which I remember hearing this is not a good spot for an auxiliary.)

thanks

IMO put it in the center,you won't gain much by locating it near or away from the inlets.
I put my 16" pusher in the center and it is also controlled manually.
Below is a link to a photo of my set up.

are you running a regular belt drivin fan on the motor too?

Mine will be for sitting in traffic, long lines, and long hauls through the desert. Just to bring it down a few degrees in times of need.

I heard if you put it in the center it restricts the air flow from the mechanical fans shrouded area. There for I'd have to use the electric one a bit more.
