Electric Fans
 
Im looking to get the U/D pullies and doing the electric fan at the same time.

Anybody know what the best electric fan is off of a junked vehicle, the best electric fan is off the market, and which one of those would be better?

This is for a 2003 3.0L V6.

Also anyone done this before to where they have a write up for it on instillation?

Thanks guys!

a lot of people pull taurus fans out. the 3.8 ones, and use those. as far as aftermarket, a fan is a fan as long as it pulls enough cfms then your good to go. i know black magic has a flex-a-lite for the ranger that is somewhere in the neighborhood of 2,800 cfms, and it will bolt up to the stock location, you tap some wires into the harness and add the thermometer.

Im probably going to look at the junk yard here for the fan. Is there any special wiring that I need to grab off the car with it? Are there certain things I will have to change with my truck to install it properly?

I was looking to do this too. I just need some help with the wiring and electronics. It's quite confusing.

That write up says it's for '84-'94 Rangers.

oops my bad. ill get one for newer ones
edit: so its pretty hard to find the install instructions for post 94, ill spend i bit more time looking it up tomorrow

Alright.

I tried looking a how to on the 03 but i must be looking in the wrong places.

Im assuming when you do this too you have to take off the fan shroud from the readiator also.

Bear 09-18-2009 07:18 PM

Ywah idk what to do either..
