My 2007 L40 has engine
compartment blowers. One was installed upside down, and was destroyed by the salt
spray. I asked several people about replacing it, and nobody said it was even needed, nor did anybody mention they thought the CG requires one for Diesel
engines. The consensus was that a diesel
pulls in enough air that the engine
should be adequately cooled.
was so difficult, I couldn't imagine replacing it. A compromise was to install a computer fan. Cut the hole bigger, pre drill the mounting holes, and lift
it into place with a string. Attach longer wires to it first so that connection is simple. Cheap
, quiet, easy install, and takes almost no electricity (about .2 amps compared to 5 amps). Moves about 35cfm compared to 125cfm.
