Re: [DML] Fanzilla Clones



My dear fellow enthusiasts, I feel I must speak up here about these 
fan controllers. Take your money you want to spend on these 
controllers and put it towards either Special T Auto's (John's) new 
low amperage fans or Delorean Parts Northwest's (Toby's) new fans. 
Here is my experience... I installed John's fans and new 3 core 
radiator as I was restoring my car. I had never driven my car - it 
was delivered to me DOA on a flatbed trailer. Anyway, after my 
restoration and when I got the car running I had only a Bosch relay 
and fan fail module jumper in the sockets. Everything was working 
just fine. Then I started working on my AC problem (wouldn't cycle). 
In my quest to isolate the problem, I made the decision to take out 
John's new fans and re-install the original fan setup, wrongly 
thinking that the fans might not be pulling enough air through the 
condensor...

Well, let me testify...the original fans did make a lot more noise 
than John's, but my AC problem didn't improve a bit, my coolant 
gauge was exactly in the same place as with John's fans, but most 
importantly, with the original fans the fan relay and jumper was too 
hot to touch!!! The new 30 amp breaker I had installed was tripping 
out after about ten minutes of powering the old setup. Not good!

After I once again put John's fans back in, the fan relay and jumper 
are actually COOL to the touch, even after an hour of operation. 

The current drawn by John's fan setup is well within the safe 
operating range of an ordinary 40 amp auto relay, with no need for 
overly complicated control systems. You can't even tell when they 
come on, except for the "cooling fan fail" light".

Many, many new parts from John, Toby, Warren, and Rob :)

PS: My coolant guage needle points to just slightly above the first 
mark above cold after warm up.
