Can anyone tell me the proper direction the BLADE should be pointing on a CURVE BLADE fan.

I need to confirm the direction of he CURVE BLADE with the motor set in the PULLING air position.

I currently have the fan with the TIP leading and I don't think this is correct.

Thank you in advance.

LG,
Mike

It will work either way, but better with the tip trailing.

Issue resolved.
Somehow I crossed the fan motor wires when I replaced the sensor.
Reversing the wires makes it work properly, which is PULLING since my fan is between the radiator and the motor.
I looked at the direction vendors placed the blade in their fan/shroud package.
As you stated, the CURVE should be leading. This is exactly the way my fan is working now and it pulls a lot of air.

Thanks a bunch,
Mike
