This fan was in my car when I bought it. I installed a vintage air in the car and it seems to be running a bit warmer than I feel comfortable with. It's 16 inches in dia. about 4 1/2 inches deep.The label on it has a arrow pointing in the opposite direction that the air is flowing when the fan is running.When I turn the fan on it doesn't seem to flow that much air. I was thinking that it's a pusher fan.I know it will run warmer with the air on,but I have not been impressed with the cooling of the fan even without the air.It has a high flow water pump,high flow thermostat,over sized aluminum radiator. I have no ideal what the cfm rating is on the fan.I hade a setup very close to this setup in my Mustang and never saw the temp go over 195 even on the hottest day stuck in grid lock in a car cruise.If any one of you guys can identify this fan and tell me what the cfm is it would greatly appreciated.Roger

well hmmmmmm It appears to be a hayden 1500 cfm something you would buy at AutoZone for 50.00 ,,, first you need a shroud and then you need a GOOD fan like the taurus or a dual set out of a v6 ford escape

I think your right. The fan in my Mustang was rated at 2500 or 2600 cfm.It moved alot more air than this peace of junk. I plan on looking at the fans you mentioned.If the dual fan will fit ,it's the way I will go. Thanks for your input. Roger
