On an 08 451 is there 1 or 2 cooling fans and if one is it a fairly good size or a small one? Somewhere I had the idea there was one small (maybe 6 or 8 inch) fan that sits behind and in the top right corner (pass side) of the radiator.

P.S. what is the cooling area size of the radiator.......

There is only one fan behind the radiator. A 14 inch Hayden Rapid-Cool 1050 CFM fan is more than enough to keep things cool. It has more capacity then the stock one and will fit in the front of the radiator. Hayden part #3690

thank you Jim. If I recall you said you had to make some special brackets to mount it in front.....do you have any pics? I have had those fans before and they are great, the thing that always scared me was to push those black extenders thru the radiator as you watch the fins spread and prayed each time that one of the fins did not tear lose and cause a leak. Did you leave the rear hooked up and run both or just plugged the factory wires into the new fan?
