fitting thermo's to xf

Hi Guys. I have a xf fairmont and I was just wondering if anyone had gotten rid of their clutch fan and fitted thermo /s? If you have what car did they come off, or what brand are they and did you have to modify the radiator or make a brace to fit them? Also how do you wire them to come on when the temp gets a certain hottness?

Cheers

Damo

Re: fitting thermo's to xf

talk to Barry @ BPT he has a thermo fan set-up to suit the EA falcon range & may be able to adapt something for you

Re: fitting thermo's to xf

i got a cheap one through a friend who works at volvo.
big volvo thermo which blows heaps of air. we had to trim it a bit as it was to wide. but othewr then that no dramas.
screws straight in.
im running a manual switch so i dont know about hooking one up so it comes on by itself.

Re: fitting thermo's to xf

you can buy a thermo switch at any auto shop for about $60

i run a fan off a 2.6 magna efi, its much easier to use a blow type as there is a lot more room in front of the rad

Re: fitting thermo's to xf
