Re: Forgot more than I know

As far as cooling, there will be others here that understand the wiring behind the condenser fan coming on. BUT FOR ME PERSONALLY I would never run the co...

Was actually a new install on a vintage car. Finally decided condenser was no good. Once it was out, we shook all kinds of shiny aluminum c...
