Re: Cooling fan shootout - Engine Masters

Re: USRA engine

Key words to me are stock "appearing "crank to me that means I can stroke a 302 ford to 347 and take advantage of lighter engine and place weight where I want it on the chassis.

A blower off an old furnace may provide enough airflow to cool the telma.

Since a telma is just a series of electro magnets cooling it shouldn't be to tough they live in a pretty low airflow environment on my busses.
