Umpteen years ago, when i was building my car there weren't a lot of choices for fans.
Am using a Flex-a-Lite 16" that pulls 2200 cfm. It's working well with the 4 core, brass, high efficiency standard size Mustang II V-8 radiator. Just replaced the controller for the second time (3 total). It's a Hayden - adjustable. Nice little unit when it works but made in China. It's the kind with the temp prob in the radiator fins. Not opposed to changing it to a sender in the water jacket type.
Now that we've moved to Phoenix, most favorite wife wants to add A/C. Hope to use the same radiator, but that's not set in stone. May have to go aluminum.
Hoping to avoid 10 days of internet searching and ask you-all for firsthand recommendations. Anyone out there have some wisdom to pass on ?
Thanks

I'm a big fan of "http://coolingcomponentsinc.com/" solid state fan controllers. They are very compact and easy to wire, eliminate separate relays, can operate two fans or two-speed fans, are weather-proof, and have never failed me (used for years on two different cars). I had a Hayden once on a previous hot rod and it didn't last very long for me either.

I can also recommend Cooling Components integrated fan/shrouds if you decide to upgrade yours.
