    If I I just bought a new tranny cooler and an electric fan for it, and I mount it between the Radiator and Grill.... Im probably gonna want the fan to be pushing right? Its a push/pull fan. I know it sounds like a dumb ? but an answer to confirm would be perfect. Thanks

    If it's in the front, it still has to try and force the air through both coolers, which will slow it down. If there is space between the two coolers then it might be a bit better in front.

    I believe GM mounted their tranny cooler fans in the front.

    Front, push.
    What temp did the factory units come on at? I know the sender was in the Pass. cylinder head.

    The aux pusher fan on my burb came on somewhere around 220....really high. I replaced the sender with a painless 185 from summit.

    I thought the main idea with the aux/cooler fan combo was to allow you to mount it anywhere. You are not restricted to putting it in front of the radiator and blocking airflow. You can put it anywhere its protected and the fan will still make it work.

    Another option, run it on a manual switch. If the temp is too high for your liking, flip the fan on. You could run a temp switch if you like things auto.
