Fan Eliminator Kit
This is the home of the Original Fan Eliminator Kit for the TR3 , TR4, TR4A, TR250 & TR6! The TR6 version you see sold on eBay is not my kit and does not meet my standards for quality of material, machining and engineering. Before considering a slightly lower priced kit, compare the differences between my product and theirs.
Fan Eliminator Kit - Why Install It?
People spend thousands of dollars trying to gain horsepower yet they often overlook a quick, easy and inexpensive fix. Dollar for dollar, the biggest bang for the buck...............well, you get the idea! Triumph TR3, TR4, TR4A, TR250 and TR6 all have mechanical fans which are quite heavy and rob the engine of horsepower. Replacing the engine driven 6-1/2 pounds of fan components with an 8 ounce piece of billeted aluminum gives you an instant horsepower boost. You will, of course, have to install an electric fan to keep your engine cool but you'll find that it rarely runs, especially when you're driving over 40 MPH.
Converting a Triumph from a mechanical cooling
fan to an electrical fan is just about the perfect first upgrade.
Benefits include improved cooling, horsepower savings, slight savings in
fuel consumption. Some say the original crankshaft driven fan robs about
six (6) horsepower! Removal of the original fan set up allows an electric
fan to be mounted behind the radiator in a "puller" configuration.
The fan eliminator is a replacement for the
original cast iron fan spacer. Machined from a billet of aircraft
aluminum (6061), it is stronger and far lighter than the original.
Testing the aluminum retainer for distortion was done by actually
over-torquing the retainer bolt to more than 150 ft lbs, the max rating
for my torque wrench. Other than a mar from the lock washer, no damage
at all was done to the retainer.
