Well I finally ran the Mark Viii fan today on just jerry rig wiring.

I read that it would not fit on a big block in an intermediate chassis and that is quite true without modification. I had to move the radiator forward about three inches. I used a BFH and installed the fan upside down to clear the water pump pulley. It is now properly installed.

Back to today--I ran the engine and the fan tripped on at 180 degree and brought the temp back down to 160 in about 90 seconds and on the low speed too. This is a really excellent fan and I look forward to running it on the road after I tidy up the wiring to see how it works.

here is a pic of the fan installed.
