Hugh,

As you know, I run 1296 engines with the larger water pump pulley, to
reduce the fan noise at freeway speeds, and I don't run into cooling
problems at idle, or at full load on a 106 degree day.

I currently have completed a prototype in line marine bilge blower for
the engine compartment that moves a huge volume of air. It is well
hidden and the hot compartment air will exit via the original Amphi
louvers. Needed to drill 2 small holes for mounting.

It was installed last weekend and I will test it out this summer to see
if it makes a difference. It is not intended to use on or fix cars that
have a overheating problem. It should also help Amphi from severe
temperature rise after shutting the engine off on a hot day and allow
for easier starting. Also during water use on a hot day this blower may
help Amphi run a little cooler.

<div id="RTEContent">I added an electric radiator fan to the outside of the radiator and activate it from the driver's seat with a hidden switch. Seems to do the job.
