Taurus efan wiring....

how would i wire it up to a Jusnes Modified efan controller? the efan has 3 wires; 1 ground, 1 low 12v, and 1 high 12v. The Jusnes controller has only 1 lead going to the efan and a constant hot going to the battery from the controller. It also has a power lead for a second fan, would i use that lead for the other 12v+ wire on the Taurus efan or would i have to run one from the battery to the efan?

Well you can run the ground to any body ground, And you can hook up the high 12v to the efan controller wire and not use the 12v low if you don't want. I don't know how you can pull off using the low and high both because I'm not sure how it would recognize which one it needed.

I heard the low is like 2000cfm and the high is 4500cfm

I would just wire up the high. And if you test each wire you will know which is the high.

the taurus radiator is wider then the ranger radiator, mounting one is gona be a task.

seems the crown victoria's radiator is closer in size to the ranger.

as far as wiring goes, there is 2 relays high and low speed, the computer controls them so your gonna have to be creative or just use one speed.

i will probably just use the high speed with the most CFM's......if it is rated at around 4500CFM that would be almost double what i have now! sweet!

Trythe trial and error method.
Hook a set of jumper cables to the battery.
Connect the negative cable to the neg lead of the fan.
Touch the pos cable to one fan lead at a time and see which makes it run faster.

i got it figured out....it was the black/yellow wire......man i can feel the air being sucked through the radiator from the front with that thing.....and what is cool, if you turn it up sideways, it fits the 4.0 OHV radiator perfectly...

i love this thing.....the shroud covers the WHOLE radiator....

there is no "seat of pants" difference....i had an efan before.....

i would recommend the Taurus efan to anyone.....i let my truck run till it got up to about 200* (turned the fan off), i kicked the fan on and watched the temp gauge drop to about 150*-160*.......left the efan on there and man she hung out there.......

i will snap some pictures tomorrow for you folks if i remember!

i though they were the same radiator.....

it is awsome....you can hear the thing running going down the road.....it flat moves some air....even on the low speed it moves some air.....i could have gotten away with it on low, but i wanted more

you can feel the air being pulled through the radiator on all parts of the radiator.....not just were the small 16" diameter fan was before....

i used the push through plastic thingies and then made a clip that slips over the top aluminum lip on the radiator and screws into it.....

i will take some pictures of it for you tomorrow....

Could be the same....not sure. I do know that last year when I thought about replacing it, everywhere I called wanted to know if it was SOHC or OHC, 2wd or 4wd, and if it had a factory tow package.

Looking forward to the pics. I REALLY want to put an e-fan back on mine, but I need one that will cover the entire radiator. Without full coverage, the tranny coolers are not getting enough air.

if i remember correctly, the deminsions were 17.25" x 22.25"......my radiator just happen to be exactly 17.5" wide and about 24" tall......so i turned the fan long was and installed it......it has great coverage.....i would seriously invest in one if i were you.....it doesn't move the way i have it mounted......the only bad thing is, with my truck (don't know about the SOHC) it is a good thing i have a body lift on and the radiator in the stock location or the fan wouldn't clear the water pump pulley.....but i think there is more room on a SOHC between the water pump pulley and the radiator.....all you need is an extra 1/2" on a SOHC and it will work fine without a body lift.....

I'm glad you like it! .. it was a badass fan when i had it.


I had it mounted the long way up and down too, it covers it great. BTW the way you have it is cut out of a larger shroud that comes on the car originally. I cut it down as nice i could and fit it to the ranger


THAT ****s Cutsom SON!

So what year/ engine size Taurus you get it from?

I assume you had the 4.0 in your truck when it was installed?
