After you think you have it positioned correctly, keyword here being ‘think’, put the driver’s side plastic in the machine again and screw the aluminum plate to it. From here you can put the intake tubes back through the aluminum, install the elbow, clamps, and the fan, and make sure the fan will 1.) Clear the battery. 2.) Fit behind the plastic housing. 3.) The bolts to mount the fan don’t hit the motor. After you’re satisfied with the fit, drill the holes in the aluminum for mounting the fan. I used 1/4” pan head bolts, 1" long, with lock nuts and a piece of rubber between the fan and the aluminum to hopefully absorb vibrations. I installed them from the back side so they wouldn’t hit the motor.
Next is wiring it all up. I love those wiring harnesses off Amazon, I have two more running my light bars. They’re big time savers because you just hook them up to the battery and you’re done. Don’t try to save money by putting one together yourself, you’re just wasting time IMO. I mount the relay behind the seat in the square-ish looking recess and extend the leads to reach the battery. FYI, I did have one fuse vibrate its way loose on one of my light bars once, so I stuck some stuff up under the fuse cover to hold down on the fuse. You can tap into the wires running to the harness switch and attach the remote wire from the relay to key on power. The key on power can be found on a standard 2 way trailer plug right behind the dash, if you pull the block plates off the blank switches under the speedo you’ll see it. You can simply use a test light to confirm which wire it hot for key on, and which wire you need to tap into on the wiring harness switch. I kept the switch so I can also turn the fan on if the machine is not running, but hardwired it to key on power also so I won’t ‘forget’ to turn it on one day. You’ll read lots of stories on here where the one time they forgot to turn the fan on they blew the belt because it blocked that air flow.
After you make sure it’s wired up properly, put all the plastics back on and enjoy cooler temps and lots of air!
