I was planning to buy Pacet fans for my donkey, oops sorry viper :o , but noticed that the original fans look like they were driven by a chain - am I right in thinking this? And if so are these still availalble - and are they any good?

The immortal words of a J. McEnroe spring to mind.

I wonder if this refers to a very old style of fan belt, made up of lots of links of leather? Looked a bit chain-like.

You see, we old pharts do have our uses!

Hopefully the attached pic will explain what I mean! From it you can see that both fans are 'attached' by a belt/chain.

Hi

I'm fairly sure the original Cobras had twin electric fans mounted in front of the Rad as shown in you picture. The bits that run between the two fans are just the mount bars I think.

This place sells very close copies of them

Not too cheap though.

Ok - thanks for that. A friend suggested that it might be that the first fan had power which drove the second fan using a belt or chain - and I have to say that thats what it looks like in the picture!

Thanks again.
