distance between the mechanical fan and radiator

Post by howso48 » Thu Jun 21, 2012 10:19 pm

I need a true measurement (distance between the mechanical fan and radiator) on a 1997 astro LT for fitment of a secondary electrical fan I know I could take the time and possibly get a antiquate reading by sticking a tape measure through the blades or remove the top portion of the shroud :cry: but its late in the day :cheers: and warm out side and I'm old ,and I wish I had a air conditioned garage, :D should I go on ??? \:D/

my son will be 16 and able to drive this summer. I asked him if he would like one of my vans...
He said he doesn't really want his friends to see him driving an old guy mobile !
I sent him out with a stack of resumes, Lol...

Awesome! :muhaha: I keep telling my kids It ain't Burger King...you can't have it your way! My son Ben will be 16 in September and going in 11th grade. I figure the next summer he'll either be driving my van or we'll look for a small fuel efficient beater he can take off to college as well. Not sure I want to give up my van!
