(And yes Gene, I will upgrade to a #10 ground wire at that time).
I read through the posts, maybe I missed the answer. If I want to get a C4 fan for my 70, do I order the 1580182?


Also, Can someone recommend a compressor for me? I'm using a Serpentine drive on my BB. (GMPP Serpentine for a SB with adapter plates.) It will accomodate an R4, but I'd like to put in a modern aluminum compressor (Sanden, Niponso...) Recommendation for a compressor that'll mount up in place of an R4. Thanks again.
I don't think there is an adapter for a Sanden style/R4 conversion and you will have clearance problems with the head. Even though the Sanden is smaller, it is longer than the R4.

This is a picture of my R4 on a BB.
