Wondering if anyone has attempted to install a Triumph plastic 13
blade fan to an amphicar. Curious if there is clearance and if there
is a benefit to hot running temps with the extra blades.
Sounds like a good idea. Do we have a volunteer?

Hello Mark,
I tried the 13 blade fan, with the Triumph fan clutch/water pump, and
found that it didn't work too well. I think the problem is that the
system was designed to work on a 1500 engine. That engine has a
larger pulley on the main shaft and spins the water pump faster than
it did with the smaller pulley on the Amphicar. It fits fine and just
might work with a large crank 1296 or 1500 engine, but not with the
1147 or small crank 1296.
