I am looking for a fan shroud and a 5blade propeller for my 63 non-a/c Cadillac (to improve cooling).
Could not find these here in Germany so far.
Has anyone an idea where to get them in the US?
background: I ran into a monstrous stop-and-go traffic jam on the Autobahn the other day and for 20 minutes or so everything was fine but then the water temperature went up and up. Just made the next exit before it reached the 'H' on the right and could drive some kilometres on that road to cool it down again.
Radiator should be ok and it had enough coolant in it.
Whenever I get stuck in stop and go traffic I put the heater on and the fan on high and that usually brings the temp guage back down. The heater core adds 10 to 15 % percent to your radiators capacity. A trick I learned taking my car in slow moving parades
Thanks for that - I will try it next time :-)
I have the fan, but not the shroud. I am planning on bringing in a parts car in a few weeks, so keep an eye out on the site. One never knows what can be found on a new car.
