I have dual fans and a signal fan. I would like to know what size wire, relay and fuse to use on ether set up. Should I get a relay wiring harness? Summit and jegs sell relay kits and thermostat kits should I get thermostatic switch or the adjustable thermostat probe. I would like to be able to adjust it/them to the right setting. looking to install one of them in the 78 El Camino for a resonable price. what do you run how is it run. A Diagram would be nice.


Thanks Doug

You definitely need to use relays & some sort of a thermostat. I would look for recommended wiring kits from whatever manufacturer you chose for your fans.

I have two questions. whats the differents between a 30 amp fuse and a 30 amp circuit breaker ? Which is better which one do you use and why ? the fan im using is from a 93-95 Mopar mini van With a four wire connector so im thinking its a two speed hi/low fan, But it doset matter how I wire it the fan speed is the same. Any ideas what going on ? This is how im wiring the fan.

Thanks Doug

If it's like a power window breaker, it needs power to be removed to reset vs a fuse needing to be replaced. Something else to consider would be a fusible link:

They don't open as easily as a fuse, which is better for something with a higher initial load (like a fan motor).
