I just use my heater blower, with the heat shut off...
But, whatever works for you, as long as you don't get your foot into the fan! (LOL).

Sorry Steve I meant the starter cable. Attribute it to stage fright. I'm not used to making videos.
And I just draped it over the cable. Did not tie it on.

Ed, The last time I got my toe caught in a fan it wound up as item # 459-299 in the Moss catalog.

The heater fan works ok but it doesn't really circulate the air down by my feet. More like from the shins on up.

I just needed another toy while waiting for my manifold to come back from the ceramic coater.

Lets see what can I play with next?

Mort, try this. I cobbled it together during in a Home Depot parking lot during a trip home from a GOF in southern Indiana. Cost just a few bucks. The bottom end is held in place with a bungee around the tubular hoop.

Colin,
I've got to send you a "NOS" sticker for that one ...think of it everytime I see it! LOL

David, are you coming to the Michigan GOF? If so, lets get together.

Colin,
I had one just like yours but replaced it with the one in the photo. It's from a Sears Shop Vac hose kit and a large plastic funnel also from Sears.
I had this on and it was effective as long as we were moving at a decent speed. But I am anxious to try the fan out for constant circulation.
Today I am installing the manifolds with the exhaust manifold and pipe ceramic coated. Then of for a test drive and I'll report the results of that and the fan also.

why not remove the steering column excluder (454-040) permanently and may be enlarge the hole in the firewall. Then you will have a permanent airstream on your feets. Eaven in rain they are water cooled.
:-)
Enjoy whatever you do.
Cheers,
