Default Fan Mount

I am looking for ideas on a way to mount a motor fan on a Associated SC10. Anyone got any ideas?

I assume you are talking about the motor

I mounted mine to the rear bumper bracket that runs over the motor. Just use zipties and make sure it is blowing down on the motor.

You shouldn't really need a fan

I imagine a good motor mounting plate acting as heat sink will do more work than a fan back there. The motor on a 2wd is generally wrapped up in enough vehicle that air flow will not be improved much by a fan.

Just what I am looking for. I assumed I needed some type of mount. Pretty simple design you have. Do you notice a difference in motor temperatures?

Do you have a picture of how you have yours mounted?

That's not my truck, it's Ryan Maifield's. Depending on what fan you run, you can see a pretty significant drop in temps. If you are looking for a fan, the WTF ones are supposed to be pretty good, although I've never used one.

This is where mine is mounted, but instead of screws I use zip-ties.
