Counter clockwise 5.9 fan motor.. Oops

Appearenly my vdo 9027 motor spins the the wrong way, but still pulls air. Should I get the 9069 that spins the correctly? Cooling has been a bit iffy at 90 degrees, I'm wondering if I'm loosing performance..

Bought a 9069 motor and the %$# damn thing won't fit the Mark VIII blade. Shaft way too short.

It's spinning the wrong way and still pulling air through the radiator? Weird.

Not sure how you are confirming 'pulling the right way'. Does a piece of tissue paper stick to the front of the radiator?

At driving speeds, the fan is less significant. Air flow is driven directly by speed.

It's definitely pulling air through the radiator.

Maybe I'll try to stick a crown vic fan blade in there and get the 9069 working.
