Flex-A-Lite Syclone S-Blade electric fans are very quiet and efficient. What's more, they can recover horsepower and torque that are stolen by typical belt-driven fans. Syclone's simple mounting and compact size makes them ideal for auxiliary cooling. They're reversible, too, so they can push or pull the air, and lots of it. These fans mount through the radiator core and come with rugged nylon shrouds engineered to withstand high temperatures.

MUST HAVE!!! ...keep it cool...

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

FLX-398
I installed a pair of these fans on a 98 Chevy C3500HD with a 454... I installed a Dakota Digital fan controller and set the temp for 175 degrees... the engine temp sits right at 195-200, where the thermostat operates... I made the mistake of setting up the fans on a circuit without checking for fuses and their ratings... the circuit was protected by a 30amp maxi fuse which was insufficient for the current these things draw... after a few days I blew the 30amp fuse... in a matter of seconds my engine overheated... I installed an 80amp fuse and haven't had another problem... bottom line: you don't notice how well these fans work until (a stupid mistake I made...) they stop working... that 454 generates a ton of heat and these fans do an amazing job of keeping that motor cool as a cucumber... I can't recommend them enough! by the way... this is a tow truck and is running pretty much all day every day! ...read more

Great fan/ change mounting point

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

I installed this fan and it worked great, pushed lots of air and kept my 400 small block cool. But the nylon bolts that came with the kit to install directly through the rad broke my rad fins and caused a leak. So now I am mounting it with brackets welded to the rad and all should be good now.

nice fan

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

Fan is constructed well and seems to work great. It is larger in appearance then I thought it would be but still withing the range of measurements given. I wouldve like to seen the power and ground wires from the motor to be 10 gauge, they are 12 but otherwise a good buy! Flexalite always has good product!

Excellent fan for my 550hp dyno engine in my street 1967 camaro. I ordered the summit mounting brackets, that mount to the top and bottom of the radiator.

Great product

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

I purchased this for my '92 Wrangler...4.0L (In-Line 6). Fan works great. Only complaint is the mounts. I used the plastic "spears" that came with the fan. The ties poke thru the radiator fins and plastic "caps" engage on the opposite side. Locking teeth on "spears" were not fine enough - fan still had a tiny-bit of movement. Also, once the caps are locked on, very hard to remove without damaging teeth. ...read more
