    What kind of pc fan do you have? Mine has the 'sucker' part on one side, and the 'blower' part on the end, instead of sucker and blower on opposite sides. I just used duct tape and fixed mine to one of the windows, with the sucker part on the inside. I'll see if I still have the pic.

    Well, here's how its done if you use the Hovabator kit which uses a pc-like fan.

    Please note that this particular van uses 110 volts AC so DO NOT wire your low voltage pc fan per these instructions. To use the low voltage fan you need an appropriate transformer to plug in the wall to supply the low DC voltage that it requires.
    Also note that the fan installed per these instructions blows up toward the top of the incubator, not down at the eggs.
