I assume you're still cooling off the radiator with the original pulley driven fan?
Just wondering if you guys have access to Toyota Kijang (Assembled in Indonesia) or Isuzu Panther over there? It's quite common for us to use them Radiators here (slightly bigger size, so only need to modify the mounting brackets).
My personal rig is still running on the original radiator, yes, it does overheat at times (especially in heavy traffic). Made some small modification to it;
Bought a used Mitsubishi Galant Radiator Fan (Electric) - USD 15.00 from the junk yard.
Took out the original Air Conditioner Fan (Too small to do any good)
Made some minor modifications to mount the bigger Radiator Fan in front of the Air Con Condenser. Cost about 5 bucks at the local workshop including materials and workmanship
Make sure the wiring is right or you'll have it blowing the wrong way. I'll wired mine up so that it'll turn on whenever I switch on the Air Con
Now, whenever the temperature is going up or I'm stuck in traffic, Just turn on the Air Conditioner and watch the Temp Meter go down.
Here's a pic of my Jimny with a close up of the Bigger Fan installed right behind the front grill.
