Thanks Tom. I'll see what the boss (wife) has planned for Saturday. I would love to see what you have done with your bus so I'll definitely swing by if I can.

Here are my fan pictures.

Picture 1 is the fan on the hub with a cardboard template to set the hole

Picture 2 is just the fan.

Picture 3 is the new metal shroud installed.   The bottom ran wild until I established the height, then I removed and cut it to length.  The shroud was made from 1/8" plate and I had a welder plasma cut the circle out of it.  on the back of the plate, I had him weld a 1" wide strap all the way around the hole.

What does that sound like from the outside when revved up-is it noisy?  My 8 blade aluminum fan is not noisy at speed, but definitely pulls the air.  Good Luck, TomC

It sounds like a small jet turbine, and it will suck you in when you walk by it at fast idle.

How would I walk by at a fast idle?   Cheesy Cheesy

Isn't "fast idle" an oxymoron?  Grin Wink Smiley

Walking by at Fast idle is when yer just walking around kinda idle, But at a fast pace!

And I thought that oxymoron or something like that is one of those hybrid gases like Oxy Acetylene or like that!

Tom, it was nice meeting you and Don this afternoon. I learned a lot. You both know your stuff! That's the kind of interaction I need to keep me inspired on my conversion.
