What fan are you guys running? How much clearance does it leave you? What did you do for an overflow(if you can't keep the stock one) Thanks!
Yeah, the fan has been in since the beginning of last summer. It performed very well. I could sit in traffic on 90 degree days and the temp will barely creep past 190* with the fan running. In the fall and winter, i barely even need the fan. And amazingly enough, that was with underdrive pulleys (which gotta go when i do a blower).slowblown5.0 said:Are you running the sn95 fan allready. And is it keeping the car cool enough?
I got mine from a '95 V6. I know 94-95's are all the same. V8's have a two speed and V6's have a high speed only.slowblown5.0 said:allright cool--did you get the fan at a junk yard? Does any sn95 fan work? Just so I get this right is sn95 the 95's and up or does it include the 94? Did it just bolt in? How do you contol it?
Where exactly did you trim the radiator support?Guess you've already seen mine but here it is again. Mark 8 fan (trimmed shroud), stock overflow, 12 rib blower pulley, Ron Davis radiator, trimmed radiator support frame, no A/C condenser, 1/4" clearance.
Thanks for the info. I was hoping maybe they were thinner than my current Taurus fan. Going to be running a 50mm cog drive with my X trim and things will be tight. I'll fab something up though.Blue Mule said:Mark 8 is 6" thick. You can trim it down to 4 1/2" to 5". I've got one stuffed in 90LX with a 3 core rad and Vortech 10-rib pulleys. If you don't think the fan will fit after trimming, you can move your radiator forward by modifiying the mounting brackets a little or removing the rubber pads, angle the bottom of the radiator into the front clip of your vehicle with new bottom brackets, or even trim out metal from the radiator support bracket for the rad's end tanks to fit into like John91coupe's.
I've got 3 Mark VIII's I'm trying to get rid of. Anybody need one, PM me.
Just an FYI. My 12 rib is about the same width as a 50 mm cog belt and it fits with mine. Refer to the pictures on the cafords website.NC STANG GUY said:Thanks for the info.
