I pull from the engine compartment and push air out on my set up.

Hope this helps. Frank
Dido to Frank. I mount the oil cooler fan on the outside of the cooler and pull the air to the outside to get rid of more heat from the engine compartment. You can buy a relay kit on e-bay for about $25 that has a sending unit included. Mine comes on at 170 deg. The sending unit went bad on me so have a toggle switch on it until I replace the sending unit.

Re: oil cooler fan

I would recommend this better "tie it into the radiator fan wiring so that it turns on/off with it." Just make sure to install a independent power source and relay on it.
