so i had to fix the timing belt i guess it skipped a tooth , i figured since i had everything apart i might as well do an e-fan
picked up a Taurus fan from T-ray  went to metal shop and then started this 



pretty much done , i had to notch the drivers side to clear the steering box
tomorrow ill see if i can get installed and wired up

its the 2 speed ford taurus fan , the kit im wanting to get has a 2 week lead time so i may end up getting something different

i cut the original ford fan shroud down just what you see in the pics otherwise it wouldnt have worked just bolting it to the aluminum shroud

also the ford shroud didnt even come close to the coverage this shroud has

Where are you getting the kit from? I am assuming you are just getting a thermostat kit, will that be with a tapped in sensor on the radiator?

got it all wired up
used a 50 amp circuit break for high and 30 for low , 2 75 amp relays and a 3 way switch to control it for now
i may install the control i order but ill probably just sell it

turned it on the other night and worked great but had to shut it off cause i was running open headers and the truck was way too loud
