Witch direction does the engine cooling fan go on a 1990 k3500 454 TBI .


Asked by Jun 03, 2015 at 11:42 AM about the 1990 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Ext. Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm replacing the cooling fan on my 454 Chevy engine and need to know which direction
does the band go on? I know there's a way it's his front on it stamped but my fan that I
bought does not have that and I need to know which direction those fins go.

Can you not compare it to the old one?


Here's the thing I put the new fan clutch on and it's the old fan but I painted over the words that said FRONT, so now I don't know for sure if I put it on facing the right way. THAT I CAN RECALL THE TRUCK NOW SOUNDS LOUDER AND ALSO GETS WORSE GAS MILEAGE AND SEEMS TO DRAG AND I JUST WAS WONDERING IF I DID PUT IT IN THE WRONG WAY WOULD IT BE PUSHING OR PULLING THE AIR WRONGLY.

It pulls air thru the radiator. It shouldn't push
