Air Flow ~ Revisited
Am I the only one who's' nervous about air flow / air velocity if a filter (of she sort) is installed?
This fan is a strong vacuum cleaner and vacuum cleaners use filters. I will monitor temps for a while with a T-couple and I have installed a new temp shutdown switch. No worries.
This fan is not a puny computer fan, this one will blow leaves across the yard. I think the OE, if this is OE, fan has plenty of suction. I have used this type fan to remove welding fumes, car exhaust, 1700 degree racing engine header heat on a dyno. I know how to handle hot stuff, this is childs play.
Your fan may not be the same. Since new, I am sure these things have been messed with plenty. My 2 fans for this F weigh at least 20 lbs each.
Look what I'm doing, I'm messing with it. So did everyone else for 60 years.
Next I will change the off balance fan on my Beseler 23. It will get a computer fan, a srong one, but nothing like the F fan. After that, I have plans for an E.
Hey all people do is throw this stuff out, so I fix and use other peoples junk.

Got it Randy and thanks for taking the time to explain. My fan does not sound as strong as what you have (someone may have messed with the motor before I purchased the equipment) but can clearly see how, with all that sucking power, air velocity would not be an issue. I appreciate you sharing your insight.
