Ford Taurus Two Speed Fan Swap
This is the best mod I
have ever done to my
ZJ. Any of you with a clutch fan know what I am talking about when I
say you can feel that thing dragging on your engine when it comes on.
Not to mention the noise it makes and if you do deep water crossing you
definitely want to be able to turn your fan off...
It is a Ford 8C607 fan. It comes in the 90 to 95 Ford Taurus and
Lincoln Mark VIII with the 3.8 litre engine.
So without further ado, here is the picture of my new fan...
Here is the location
of my relays -
passenger side behind overflow tank.
In this picture you can also see where I ran the wires to the switches
thru the fender into the cab.
Here is what the front of my engine looks like now
To do this install you
first have to remove
your clutch fan
This is done by holding the pulley still and turning the big nut that
you see in the engine picture (you will see it when you look at your
For 4.0 people there is no big nut, just four 13mm bolts.
Anyway remove the fan and the stock shroud and take the new fan.
It will clip right into the radiator edge where your stock shroud was.
This is one of the best parts - it snaps right in!
I had to fab up 2 small strips that I bolted to the stock shroud screws
and then bent to fit against the fan. I then drilled 2 holes in the
electric fan shroud and put a screw and nut to hold them on. (1/4 X 1"
and use a washer)
Wiring is simple .. Green is ground.. And one of the others is high the
other is low..(three wires =))
If you have any questions just ask. If you need help wiring the fan, PM
Good luck and enjoy...
Oh, I almost forgot... This is where I put my switches.
The first from the bottom is my OBA. The 2nd is for low speed and the
top is for high speed.
