What size-brand would anyone recommend for a puller electric fan out there for a stock sized radiator in a 66 coupe?
Just did this mod, but have yet to start the 67 back up (tonight - hopefully!!!). The Taurus fan pulls enough CFM to suck a small child through your grill! It is quite large however, and I'm sure clearance would be an issue, as it was for me. I'm not afraid to massage the 67, so I offset the rediator to one side to make clearance for the fan motor. It helps that the Taurus fan is already offset a little. It's connected to a SPAL controller, which runs the fan at 50% only when the engine reaches 160 degrees, then ramps up the speed of the fan to 100% at 200 degress. For the money, this mod can't be beat.scripts said:A lot of offroader guys over at Pirate4x4.com run old ford Taurus fans. From what I've read they any pull any after market fan on the market and thats all for 25 bucks at the junk yard. Plus, they have two speeds, so if its cold out side, you don't have a roaring fan running at full bore.
Yeah, what he said...DaveSanborn said:Other than the usual increased CFM rating, there is an added bonus to running dual fans.
The clearance/interference point with a single fan is usually the back of the fan motor and the front of the water pump pulley.
With dual fans, the motors are moved to each side of the water pump. This usually results in a clearance gain as the water pump pulley can now nestle into the recessed shroud area between the dual motors.
