Clutch Fan To Thermos

Sorry guys, I need some info on who, and what has been done to change from Clutch Fan setup to Thermo fan setup in an EBII. Now the best I can come up with is to buy 2 10" Davies Craigs and a switch to operate them. I went for the EF thermo setup but the computer in the EBII doesnt have ThermoFan capabilites. Therefore that idea is scrapped, plus they wont fit the EBII radiator shape apparently with the different shrouds they have. Im sure this process has been done before by people, as in this hot weather in Sydney, with a clutch fan, the engine temp rises to high when stopped in traffic with A/C on...so that why I want to convert to Thermofans.

i have an ea and after taking the clutch fan and shroud off the ef twin thermos dropped straight in

hooked them up to a temp switch which is higher than the thermostat temp and the air con with a couple of relays

they work perfect

also do a search, there is heaps of stuff on them

one guy on here sells a kit for them which looks like they would be the easiest way to go with full instructions and everything you need

i just did the conversion 2 weeks ago.
i bought the EL thermos ($275), and wired them up to 2
missile switches next to the t-bar, and two 30amp fuses.
i just turn them both on as soon as the engine is running.
easy as that.

man it runs heaps cooler now and has a little more power down low too.

gone to ford forums.com.au.............

I've also had this conversion but my mechanic didn't wire the fans to the air con...I guess its just one wire to the relay? Which wire? :hrm: :s5

EB SiX on Nos - Did you have any problem removing the radiator shroud that the original clutch fan spins in? And how did u attach the new Thermos?..Brackets? or the supplied EL setup?
And wouldnt you need to run relays as well/instead of fuses?

i removed the shroud about 2 years ago and cant remember if it was hard to do.
i think you have to take the fan of first.

the EL thermos bolt on to the radiator and the bottom rests in
a pair of v shaped clips.
the clip on the drivers side does not exisit on the eb radiator.
but it does not really need it as the hose holds it firm.

i didnt bother with relays (yet) as im using 30amp switches.

Yeah thats ok..Next question, is the EF thermo setup the same as EL?...I can get a set of EF thermos/surrounds etc, for $220 so Im hoping this all fits.

El Falcons have a differant radiator and so a differant setup. An El radiator doesn't fit and neither does the fan setup.
only the EF stuff.

Breathe! It's only the internet....
