My P6B has two fitted- standard Japanese items. You will also need a
coolant overflow tank.

Hi Netters

I haven't posted a message for a while but continue to read the messages
with interest.

At last I have been able to set aside some funds to complete a few jobs
on my '76 P6B.

My query relates to my viscous fan.  It is seized and drives noisily as
a fixed unit.  I have a working replacement viscous coupling but would
prefer to fit an electric fan or two to reduce noise and perhaps to save

I'm in Perth, Western Australia, where the summer temperatures do reach
the high 30's [Celsius] to the low 40's, and I have air conditioning.
The car has a recently reconditioned cooling system / radiator.

Could members please offer advice as to whether one or two electric fans
would meet my needs for cooling, as this is the way I would like to go
if it is going to provide effective cooling and lower noise levels.

Kind regards

Peter Mitchell
