6 volt auxillary electric fans?
« on: June 27, 2005, 10:14:02 AM »
Hi Folks,

   I recall mention in an copy of the Self Starter earlier this year that someone was going to be producing 6 volt auxillary fans again.  Does anyone have contact information on the company producing these?  Having watched a few cars overheat in recent parades, I am trying to be proactive, before my 1947 6207 starts making public appearances.

Did you ever find a company that produces the 6 volt fan

If you cant find a 6 volt fan, try 2 small 12v fans in series.
 This  trick works with some 6 volt equipment. (horns, ETc.)

Hi Ralph - no, no one has dropped me a note, and I havent run across a supplier yet.  Ive been busy with winterizing the house, so to be honest, havent done any hunting lately for one.

Two resistors in parallel reduce the voltage, not in series.

 There is a six volt fan on the market. Scott fans have what you are looking for. The have a webb site. Get the largest fan that will fit. It will work well for parades. I have used there fan for a few years without any problems. My engine drivin fan has been removed. Good luck -   jack
