    Hey Pete. What shroud is that you've used? It looks like it might have some rubber flaps at the top that open once the rad gets airflow going through it?? Would you mind getting a closer shot for me if that is the case please?

    Thanks

    The fans came with the kit I purchased from BeCool years ago. The fans are made in Italy and the shroud says Correggio on them. I'm pretty sure these are the ones I have but I couldn't tell you where they are made these days. https://www.becool.com/product/11-i...-fans-euro-black-high-torque-be-cool-radiator

    This looks like the same Italian company but USA based.

    Forgot to mention in the video the wattage rating of the resistor for the standard GM CS130 when placed in series with the "L" connector when not using a warning bulb in a completed circuit or in parallel with the bulb. The 71 Camaro ran a 194 bulb which is 3.8 watts (2 candle power) for the warning light. I would recommend 5 watts and a wire wound resistor would be my preference instead of a ceramic or carbon type. In either case the CS130 needs to see resistance on the "L" connector to charge correctly. There is a lot of conflicting information online about resistance values. Resistor in series with "L" at 13.8 volts and using no bulb in a completed circuit worked out to about 50 ohms. Using a bulb and a resistor in parallel with the bulb to maintain the "L" circuit should the bulb burn out is about 500 ohms or slighlty more.

    The Powermaster 47461 does not require a resistor but will still run a warning light correctly. The "L" connector has no effect on the alternator's ability to charge correctly according to Powermaster. It is a true one wire!

    Radiator is mounted. Waiting on an upper radiator hose that should solve the stock OEM hose from rubbing on the alternator because of the GMPP Serpentine drive. I have come up with a mounting idea that would solve the stock OEM issue but would rather just do it with a stand alone hose that works without any fabrication.

    Yes you are correct. Good fan shrouds($$$$) have the little rubber flaps. They open when your moving and close when the fan are on. (pulling)
