OK, so we have vet65te telling us what works for him (part-time pusher) and fuzzyff essentially calling him nuts.
You know, if you have a recommendation or want to say what works for you, that's great. But if your main mission here is to criticize others, then please go find another website.
BTW, I'm convinced that all you need to keep a small block cool is a good quality radiator that's new or recently cleaned, along with a 6-7 blade mechanical puller fan. Heck, all my car has is a Derale large blade flex-fan with a Griffin down flow radiator. I have zero cooling problems, even here in North Texas. Coolant temp usually hangs around 180-190, and MIGHT approach 200 on a 100 degree day at a long traffic light.
That said, I've been meaning to try a clutch fan setup someday. An electric fan is added complexity that I'd personally rather stay away from. But I also have a mechanical fuel pump and manual brakes, so you can see where I'm coming from. However, I will admit to power steering and A/C.
