Question Electric Fan Conversion

I bought a 91 LX Conv 5.o last spring and drove it til the winter set in and it's currently in the garage awaiting the winter thaw. I heard from places that you can convert to an electric fan from 3.8 Taurus. That's cool! I want to try it but my prob is the wiring. Does anyone have a schematic, do I need a 2-speed switch, or is there a pre-made wiring kit? Any help would be appreciated...

Re: Electric Fan Conversion

There Is A Kit Ready To Install At Your Part Store Comes With Your "temp Sensor" Fully Adjustable Dial You Can Set When The Fan Comes On. I Did This On My 2000 Ford Ranger And Works Great. It Cost Me About $75 For This Kit Not Including The Fan. The Fan You Just Need To Watch How Much Amp Draw There Is Any Questions Let Me Know. Hope This Helps

Re: Electric Fan Conversion

Last I checked you could get some wiring diagrams off the Flex-A-Lite fan website. Haven't been there in over a year but I'm sure something there will give you a rough idea. They have their own fan for the Mustang as well.

'06 Pontiac G6 GT 3.5L 220hp; 44,000m

'99 Taurus 3.0L 2V Vulcan 145hp; 154,300m - Traded
Amsoil in all vehicles!

Re: Electric Fan Conversion

A 96 thunderbird 3.8 electric fan works good to. I had to trim about 1" off the whole shroud, but it fits side to side and top to bottom really good and looks factory.

I used the factory wiring that feed my alternator to kick my fan on with a 30amp Bosch relay and a 210 temperature sensor mounted into the frost plug hole on my thermostat to kick the relay on. Please note that the alternator feed wire was not used anymore for me as I upgraded to a 3G Alternator from a 96 T-bird. So choosing this method is a double upgrade.

Re: Electric Fan Conversion

The Taurus fan is a two speed, but there's no problem with just wiring it up so that it alternates between off and high speed either.
