The part number is 67015 for the mustang 5.0 one which is the same fan but not mounting as the 67017 which is a universal fit model, but on backorder from jegs and summit until 4/5/05, but is also a few $ cheaper. (~$120 plus their $9 handling)

I got the 67017 on ebay yesterday for $133 shipped, they said they had about 5 in stock, it was from a GM dealer (I doubted it would be for the 5.0, for obvious reasons but i called to make sure it was the 67017 and that they had them in stock. Should have it next week).

Yeah, I really cant see those bolts, I'll have to go toake a pic, or maybe just have a mechanic take it off, I imagine forcing that thing to turn cant be good for so long.

You still should whack it with a chisel to loosen it up. It's NOT torqued on -- just tight from constant spinning. C'mon -- you're a mechanical engineer, make it happen!

So...I've been reading this about the 67017 fan from Pro-Form.

Can anyone tell me if I have the clearance with the OHV 4.0 in a 1995 truck?

All you in this thread either have newer Rangers, or no Ranger at all.

I know this is a bit old, but I don't see why you should have any problem fitting the e-fan.

We used a a large socket wrench for mine, and had a long pole and pushed down as hard and as fast as we could get it. But at the end we took the socket wrench and whapped the end with a hammer and voila...the nuts came off. We spent a good 45 minutes getting that damn bolt off!

As for the e-fans, i got a black magic 15" for $120 on ebay and it works AWESOME.

Didn't I post how I did it? A chisel and a hammer. If you use it right on the big nut, it breaks it loose. It's the only way I could get it off. I haven't read back over my topic here, but I believe I posted that somewhere here in it.

I just used an open end (36mm?) and smacked it with a brass hammer to break the nut free. IIRC, the 4.0 SOHC's unscrew CCW but the 3.0's are CW (left hand thread).

Exactly. It's wierd how HARD it is to MAKE myself try to unscrew it in the wrong direction...wonder if any other 3.0 people found it hard to make themselves fight to loosen it in the "wrong" direction?
