fan swap for a 74 chevy nova

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  fan swap for a 74 chevy nova

i have a 74 chevy nova and it has a stock fan that runs on a belt. in the hot HOT, summer my car runs pretty hot while driving in the city or stuck in traffic. so i have decided to install an electric fan. i was wondering once i switch to an electric fan, what do i do with the stock fan. i know i need to take it out, but do i leave the pully and use the same belt, or should i take it out and get a smaller belt?

i was also wondering if anyone knows what the standard temp for my car is. usually on hot days the temp is at 170-185 on the highway, but on the streets its around 200-210.

thanks for your help, nate.

Hi, if you are going to install a elc. fan ,you might put it in front of the rad along with your reg, fan ,now it should run in the 180 to 190 range,that is with a 180 thermastat,you might want to get your rad boiled out .or replace it with a larger one. Good luck Slim :screwy:
