I don't know - it was just an idea I had when I saw that you had to trim fan blades. Knowing that there are very thin radiator fans available, I just picked an image off of Amazon to get the idea across.

In picture # 12, not including the drawings, the belt appears to be misaligned, not true with the pulley. Is this the picture or my eyes?

If I had know grankids were this much fun, I would have had them FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!

That one even seems thin enough you could mount on the front and push air through, instead of pull. I don't think it would look too bad if done right?

How would you paint the skull and crossbones on it, though?

If you are asking about the new alternator belt it is running true on the two pulleys.If you meanthe right banktiming belt,it has always run there.no wear on the side timing belt to speak of.Thats the way it ran when I bought it,and the way it runs after Iand changed the timing belts last summer 25000 kms ago.Just the nature of the beast I guess.



Im getting ready for a 5600km ride starting next weekend so I will make sure to have a good looksee in there this weekend

I thought you were supposed to paint that skull on the mud flap as that's the only thing they see anyway...
