It's a puller.Explorer said:Is that fan setup as a pusher or a puller in the Taurus? I need a puller setup for my application.
thanks Lance.They say 90-95 with the 3.8 V6 is the best one. I got mine out of the back seat of an 88, but who knows if it was in that particular car or not. I *think* as long as you get the 3 wire you're good. If anyone else has any concrete info I could add to the article, that would be cool.
i just did a search on www.car-part.com and the cheapest in oregon was these guys in albany. $39Benny said:There are no fans for any taurus's in the local u-pull-it. They have some on the back shelf for the low price of $65
I need one or 3 of these things.
mark VIII and 3.8 taurus are the same part #, same fanrandii said:The Taurus fan works well, but the Mustang folks have been using the Mark VIII for quite some time: http://www.geocities.com/smithmonte/Auto/MarkVIII_Fan.htm
...they claim it has the best airflow.
For severe cooling needs, the electric fan from the Lincoln Mark VIII provides the greatest airflow. The part number is F8LH 8C607 AA -- I got mine from the junkyard for $15, but they are available new for just over a grand. Fan diameter is 18" and the fan blades are optimized for low noise but high flow. Outer dimensions of this fan are 22"W x 18.5"H x 6.25"D.
94 and 95 Taurus fans work, as do the SN95 Mustang fans and late-model low-hood T-birds. Pontiac Fieros have pretty good 2 speed electric fans, as well.
It's not 100 degrees here yet, so I don't know. But as I have said, it blows almost twice as hard as my Black Magic did. It's also bigger than the BM.Lil'John said:Assuming the radiator has the capacity for the engine, will this fan work in warmer temperatures(ie 90s-100s)?
Also, to keep the info bunched here, how thick is the Taurus fan and how far should the water pump nose be from it?
I'm in the middle of a swap and I'd love to gain 2-3 inches by removing the mechanical fan
