I'm thinking I'd like to install a cooling fan to turn on during long slow uphill climbs,,,,any sugestion on where to buy one or is there one avaiable allready for a 300 fourtrax
there is no fan there,,,I just want a little extra air goin over it when going uphill real slow for a long time,,,
Wow...what's with the hate on "electrical crap"? I'm thinking a fan would be easier.An external oil cooler would probably much easier... no electrical crap to deal with.
Agreed.hehe. That's totally up for debate. Electrical stuff seems to me much easier to deal with than trying to pipe the oil out of the machine and back in. A fan is a few wires and a switch.
In the big picture, they are both the same. A few pipes and a load. Electrically, the fan is the load and the wires are the pipe. Exactly the same thing.
I run oil coolers on all of my turbo (20psi) race cars and it has nothing to do with any of that... it's to keep the oil temps down and the viscosity up! I'm really not sold on the idea that oil squirters are going to save anything when it comes to detonation temps that are WELL into a few thousand deg's...NORMALY an oil cooler is inplace to lower the donation temp of the combustion chamber...the oil cooler cools the oil down and then is shot through an oil squirter that is squirting oil on the bottom of the piston to lower donation temp for added HP and protection.
