The original E-Type cooling fan for the Series 1 was always considered a bit of a joke. It seemed to resemble a ‘Flymo’ blade rather than a an efficient cooling aid.
In actual fact, when the E-Type Series 1 hit the roads for the first time the lack of traffic meant that natural airflow through the radiator was normally sufficient to keep the engine cool. Stops were less frequent, shorter and more importantly the radiator and water ways in the engine were clear of scale so the original fan did a reasonable job of keeping the engine cool.
Sadly, times have moved on and congestion on the roads and in the water galleys in 45 year old engines engines can lead to a rapid heat build up in an E-Type which is still relying on the original cooling system.
E-Type Series 1 Fan Kit
Our new E-Type cooling cooling fan will help compensate for the increased number of prolonged stoppages you can expect on today’s roads. It won’t clear your engine and radiator of scale but it will maintain the airflow through your radiator.
Obviously we would like you to fit one of our high performance radiators to combat the effects of blockages in your existing unit but we also understand that many Series 1 E-Type owners just want a better fan that looks like it belongs on their car. For this reason we have created a high quality, authentic replica fan housing which accommodates a specially produced high performance 1150 cfm SPAL fan. This is driven by a sealed motor with ball bearings supporting the main shaft for a guaranteed long life and each fan blade is individually balanced to ensure it is quiet and vibration free.
The fan assembly is designed to replace the standard fan shroud and requires no modification to your original radiator mountings. When installed it sits in exactly the same location as the original E-Type cooling fan blade, and unlike many aftermarket fans which are fitted directly to the radiator core, ours cools the entire matrix. As you would expect our fan will fit both our high performance replacement radiators and original units from both 3.8 and 4.2 Series 1 cars. It will also fit most aftermarket radiators so long as these use the original radiator support brackets.
Standard fan complete with fused 30 amp relay in silver hammered finish.
Our E-Type cooling fan kit is supplied with a fused relay to allow it to be wired using the original Otter switch or any of the modern temperature activated switches available. The relay also avoids the ‘running on’ that can be caused by high power fans that are wired directly into the original power feed – a problem caused by the fact that the fan shares its supply with the coil.
Our fan kit is suitable for both positive and negative earth cars and comes with comprehensive instructions for both.
