Electric Fan Conversion of our 1978 Ford Pathfinder Quadravan 4x4 van
Walk around after installing an single speed Taurus fan (from a 3.8 taurus)
on our Ford 460 powered four wheel drive e-250 3/4 ton van. It is using a
Hayden adjustable fan controller with the push in probe. I still need to
remove that extra relay, hook up the manual turn on switch and replace the
3 pieces of bailing wire with the Wire hold downs.
EDIT: I found out the Fan is actually a Lincoln Mark VIII fan
3G Alternator Vid.avi
This is a short video of the Fox Body Mustang 3G 130 alternator conversion
from the stock trim 75 amp alternator. This shows how its wired with no
confusion. This is exclusively for 87-93 Mustangs. The 79-86 Mustangs use a different wiring sorry
guys. Same concept.
Chevy Silverado DIY Budget E-Fan Install
Needed to convert up to E-fans from the archaic fan clutch, and didn't want
to spend ~$400 on fans from a newer style truck, so I hit the U-Pull-It
yard for some $12/each fans. After a bit of fabrication and wiring, she's
running cooler than ever! I was even able to cut my factory fan shroud to
fit over the two E-fans (amazing) to make it look like it was factory!
Mark VIII / Taurus Electric Fan amp draw
Testing the Amperage draw on a single speed Taurus Electric fan. I'm using
a 75mv 100 Amp shunt on a 75mv Ammeter to get the Current Draw.. This
Electric Fan conversion is running on our 1978 Ford Pathfinder Quadravan
4x4 conversion with a 460 motor.
EDIT: I found out this fan is actually from a Lincoln mark VIII
1996 Lincoln Mark VIII Seafoam Treatment
I seafoamed my 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII today. I haven't done it in a while
and it shows. There was a lot of smoke this time. The white '97 Mark VIII
LSC next to it is much cleaner. The last time I seafoamed it, there was
very little smoke. According to the descriptions on the can, Seafoam is
supposed to break up carbon deposits and clean the induction system,
valves, tops of pistons, etc. It is also supposed to get rid of the rotten
egg smell associated with clogged catalytic converters. Fortunately, my
cats are still in pretty good shape. I don't know if Seafoam really works,
but I know my engine runs smoother after a treatment. And it sure is fun to
Note: Eventually, I'm going to make a more detailed step-by-step video with
someone else holding the camera. This was obviously done very quickly. Next
time, I plan to use 3 bottles. One for the crankcase, one for the intake,
and one for the gas tank. Now, you've got to remember to change your oil
IMMEDIATELY after seafoaming your crankcase. Or else the stuff will destroy
your seals and gaskets. Running it through the oil is like high performance
Motor Flush. It cleans the crap outta your engine block.
VSC and Taurus Vid.avi
This is a short video of the 3.8 taurus fan installed on my 87 GT Mustang. I found a cheap and reliable
version of a VSC (variable speed control) relay at advanced auto parts that
worked just as good as the $100+ units offered by flexalite etc.
ThunderBird Electric Fan
Testing my junkyard Tbird electric fan. Its got two speeds and is supposed
to be the big boy in the market. Shroud is 19 x 22 x 6", fan blades are 18"
Lincoln Mark VIII 2 speed cooling fan
This fan is one of the best NON- Aftermarket cooling fans for your hot rod,
be it a car that sees a lot of action at the drag strip or a slow moving
rock crawler.. This fan is for you.. It produces around 4500cfm on high and
it has 2 speeds... It draws a lot of juice so make sure your electrical
system is but for Overkill!!!
