Cooling Fan Inlet Screen...

Postby RVosari » Tue May 30, 2017 4:12 pm

I know that the off-road guys use a screen that fits over a "collar" on some of the cooling shrouds. Is there a version of this screen that would work with the doghouse shroud which does not have a collar ?

I recently had a 13" garter snake enjoying the warmth of the transaxle...and I would prefer that he and his cousins did not wander into the fan housing :(

Any ideas...?

hardware cloth and sheet metal screws should do it. Paint it black to look business-like. There is also a stainless steel version (https://www.twpinc.com/wire-mesh-materi ... less-steel) but at $100 a square foot that black paint is looking nicer and nicer.

It is only about 6 - 10 per sq ft -- thanks for that link
Oh sh*t -- It was rocket science!
That's how my brain works. It's not a perfect organ.
