Electric Fan Question

Hey all,

This is probably a really dumb question, but I'm going to ask it anyways. My ranger is a 2001. Will the Flex-A-Light for models up until 94 still fit? If not what other options are there? I'm looking into an E-Fan rather than a clutch replacement on the fan. Thanks in advance

Is the Taurus a bolt on to the pre-existing holes for the fan shroud or do any mods need to be done?

Replace your fan clutch, and save yourself a lot of problems.

Another but more exspensive option is a 18" Perma-Cool. I installed one in my 06 Ranger. If you bend the mounting feet out it can be bolted into the factory shroud and the factory condensor fan left in place.

Moved here to Perry in "94" from southern Calif.I'm on here just trying to find an outfit/business that carries an underdrive kit setup for a V-6 3.0...So far in the net I haven't had much luck,only find a crank underdrive unit,not any other pulleys for water pump,alternater,power steering and AC.I'll just keep looking,thanks again for your time.
