hi all,

I thought I gonna resuscitate this topic to post my question:

I got an old Suzuki carry microvan with the F8A engine. 0.8L 4 cyl.
Seems to me that the cooling fan is directly driven by the belt, sits on the waterpump bolted on. Possibly becasue the radiator is actually under the seat not facing the wind up front and the vehicle was designed to crawl under 3-400kg load in hot weathers.
I'm toying with the thought of removing this continously running fan and replacing it with an electric. Something I can get from the junkyards for chips.
What do you guys recon, how much energy this tiny fan takes, how much noise it produces and how much the actual cooling will be effected by it?
