Which way should the air flow on a 185?

Which way should the fan be moving the air through the radiator?


The compressor runs for a few minutes and shuts down. I can hear the water boiling inside the radiator. I think that someone has put the wrong fan on it. It is drawing air through the radiator into the engine compartment. Every one I have ever used blew the air from the engine compartment out through the radiator.

It may be a toss-up.

But if you hear boiling coolant, that suggests possibly the radiator cap is loose or leaking.
