Which way should the fan blade face in puller mode when looking at it towards the center name plate? Forward S or backward S?

Asked by paulj from dallas, tx on

Paulj, if you are standing in front of your engine looking at the back of the radiator and you put the Flex-A-Lite Universal Electric 16" Fan in as a puller fan you will see the fan motor and the fan blades should make an "S". You can see a little better here on the install instructions. http://jo.my/s-blade_fan_instructions
