   I am currently installing a Spal  supplemental electric fan to my DeWitts radiator.  My question is: where is the simplest, nearest, electrical connection for the fan wiring to the ignition wiring harness? This connection will provide power to the relay when the car is started.   Hopefully somewhere under the hood. I am thinking the hooking up to the fuse block but am looking for suggestions as to other possible locations.

If you have electric windows, there should be a circuit breaker mounted on the firewall, close to the brake booster. You can take 12v key-on power from there to control the relay. Other than that, I think you'll have to go inside to the fuse box....
