Taurus fan question, and yes, I searched

Has anyone gotten the taurus fan to work in a v-belt YJ and if so, which fan did you get?? The problem I have is that the fan from a 95 Taurus wagon (3.0L) is about 1" too deep to fit between the water pump pulley and the radiator after I cut the shroud down. Everything I've read about people doing this mod says that the fan was from a 3.8L Taurus or Mark VIII but the specs on that one put it at 6.25" deep (5.25 with the shroud cut) which is still almost an inch too deep.

If I can't get this to work, I'm going to try a parts store e-fan setup as a pusher since there's plenty of room between the radiator and the grill.

Thanks.

My fan from a 3.8 Taurus is almost 5" on the nose deep without cutting the shroud.

I recessed the radiator into the grill to fit it in front of my 350. (you lose the safety latch if you really want to have the safety hood pins are cheap)

here are the cuts


everything in


Doing this you can have a bracket on every corner to hold it, lined up with the radiator mounts. I was short a bracket though hence the through the radiator mount as a temp patch will I could get one.

I guess I have to find a 3.8L Taurus then although I will still need to cut the shroud. The damned i6 takes up way too much room. Thanks.

I added the brackets for a body lift to the radiator, raising it above the water pump nose.
