Yes, in the back and out the front makes sense from the standpoint of cooling the belt sheaves. Unfortunately, I did not have room in the back of the alternator for a blower. I assume my setup works because the blower cycles on under heavy loads and cycles off periodically, preventing the ramp down circuit in the regulator from kicking in. Mounting the blower in the back may be better if you can do it.
