I don't know for sure but you are correct. The fan should be turning clockwise to push air. I would also seal up the breaker from the weather or move it to a sheltered place. At a minimum mount it black side down and metal up. It could fill with water like that.

Well guys I did find out that the OEM fan after reversed worked well but it was to tall, So I went to local auto part store and bought a 10" low profile fan made by Hayden and mounted it
it the same spot were I had the OEM fan and that works perfect, 2 5/8" high.

Are you saying you mounted it in the stock location, behind the radiator?

nope, he did not.

he put the new fan, in the same location "in front of the radiator" where he had the OEM fan installed.

now that he has a fan that is purpose built to "push air", that radiator will work a LOT better.

The OEM impeller turned around and running backwards, will NOT push air worth a damn. the curve is wrong. The impeller has to come off the motor shaft, reverse the impeller, and put it back on the motor.

That way, with the motor running in Reverse rotation, the impeller will be turning precisely like Honda intended for it to be.
