### I operate a small coach company in the UK, and my coaches have the
radiator on the left side at the back, away from the engine, with a neat
hydraulic fan drive. Very simple and works really well, with the added
advantage that it can be thermostatically controlled. I've often wondered
whether this system could be applied to the Corvair?

Jim- It has been done and is a good idea! the downside is that the
overrunning clutch tends to be expensive
and the only advantage to it is that it helps keep the belt on during a high
rpm downshift. For street cars though, simply keeping the belt a bit loose
works well and doesn't cost anything (except a bit of extra belt

It's probably been suggested before but what's preventing one from using a
over running clutch in the fan drive. It would eliminate all deceleration
forces from the pulley/belt? Jes wonderin'.
