Back from the dead.

I went to Flex-a-lite's website, and their application specific fit for the Ranger says only up to 1994. I got a 1995, will that one work?

I hear Bob talking about the Proform 67017 from Summit...I can't see any pictures and crap.

Is it a direct bolt on?

Here's a fan that is vehicle specific for my 01 4.0L from Performancecenter.com

http://www.performancecenter.com/pro.../sf5_246~4.0l/
Seems a bit pricey compared to what others on this topic have mentioned.
Looks like it would be a direct bolt on.

Here's also a universal one, don't know if the wiring is included, also cheaper:
http://www.performancecenter.com/pro...number_FLX398/


Another question: would a high-output alternator put more drag on the motor?, such as a 200amp'er. I have a high power stereo system and with an e-fan pulling another 13amps, my stock alternator will definately die soon. I don't think the 13amps on a stock truck (that is without a stereo system) would do anything noticeable power-wise, since I play my stereo fairly loud all the time, and draw at least 30amps normal and ~60-150 amps when playing loud/pounding.

The fan I had on my 3.0 is the same as a 5.0 fan. So it should work fine on your 95, its universal fit. The model number is PRO-67015, its a Proform 15" and comes with all you need to install it and it costs 125.

Joe
I reccommend the same fan to you too, its the same as the Flex-a-lite you posted but 120 cheaper.

Thanks Ryan, good deal. I'm guessing you have put this on? If so, is the wiring simple, and it has a thermostat but where is it to be located? Did the brackets fit good?

Also, do you leave the old fan pulley on, or take it off, because it would leave alot of slack in the belt, correct?

Here it is if someone wants it:
http://store.summitracing.com/defaul...=400405&Nao=10 and then search for PRO-67015

The wiring is simple, the thermostat you stick right into the radiator. Slide a screwdriver between the fins and slowly rock it back and forth making a hole big enough for the thermostat, when you can stick the thermostat as far into the fan as you can. You leave the fan pulley on, just remove the fan clutch and everything.

I am about to put dual fans on the F-150.

The E-fan is a good mod ( IMO ). We did mine in Rayjays Garage after I had a ' meltdown ' from a bad waterpump. With the E-fan, the only issues I really notice is with the AC before the engine comes up to ' Operating temperature '.

I am gonna buy the Black Magic 150 Puller fan with 2,800 CFM. Was gonna get blue, but then I changed my mind to yellow...but I'm just gonna stick with the Black.

I'm going to wait until I buy my headers, so they can ship them together? Hmm, oh well. Only a few more things to go, and I'm done!

yeah right..done modding? NEVAR!

I think i'm going to order one soon too, sounds like a good fairly easy mod for everyone.
How is the wiring, just power and ground with the themostat harness?

The instructions will tell how you how to hook it all up, takes maybe 10 minutes. The hardest part is getting the fan clutch off.

Pics of mine installed:

ryan - which model fan is that? the flex-a-lite seems to mount with that ugly center bracket... the brackets on yours are much less conspicuous.

I just bought one off summitracing, the one I previously mentioned.
134.90$ shipped
I will update when I install, and maybe do a HOW-TO

I tried putting my fan on today, I can't get the old fan clutch off. I have the 4.0, so I guess it's not reverse threaded? I rented a wrench from autozone to do it, but it just kept rounding out the nut. I may have been going the wrong way. Any easy way to take off the clutch? Which way should I be turning, toward battery/driver side or passenger side?

When doing the wiring, where is recommened to wire to the AC?, where is the AC wire located?
What accessory/low amperage did you use for the turn on power for the fan? I was going to run a wire from my fuse panel.

I got everything together finally today. I got an auto shop to get my fan off, they had quality tools, the ones I rented from autozone were too wimpy and rounded out the nut.
My efan, I mounted it inside the stock shroud, predrilled the holes, slid the shroud and fan in separate in order to fit around stuff, bolted it on once in position. I set it in there, drilled holes where needed, and bolted up with the supplied bolts, works awesome, and real sturdy.
For the accessory wire I found an empty accessory slot in my interior fuse panel and tapped into it.
The AC wire, the compressor is right by the battery, sort of, and there is a black and white wire going into it, tapped into the white and ran it to the fan for the AC turn on.
