will au fan fit ebII Radiator???

Hi got a qutoe on a au thermo today for $250 just wondering if it would fit ok on the EB II. The clutch on the other is on its way out and i think this is a better way to go. I did a search allready on fans and found a ew things but not enough. I know the xh ute i think runs thermos and a eec4 so how r they wired in can i get the parts from ford. I read posts saying it wont run with eec-4 but then i thought well dads ute has them on i think its the xh its the ef equivelent longreach ute and has thermos mounted with the eec-4 so there must be a way. Would that be the better way get the xh thermo stuff that aftermarket stuff or isnt it compatable.

Please any help would be great

EL fans fit much better....AU fan shroud is unique a shape and doesnt go close
unfortunately the EL fans re $366 but they fit!
after a lengthy discussion with our in-house ford tech guru everything after the ED is EEC-V wether it runs a coil pack or distributor....this includes XH!
As for wiring the thing up, an aftermarket (blasphemer) thermofan sensor and switch would be a very easy & cheap solution

Yes it's true Ryan, there really is no Santa Clause..I mean pay no attention to that man behind the curtain...d'oh I really mean pay no attention to that EEC-IV on your aircleaner lid!
All XH's are EEC-V
The major difference between IV & V is diagnostics systems that arent even used for the better part in AUS..

ebIISIXA I fitted a set of AU thermos to my EB V8 a few months ago. Yes the EL fans will fit straight in the mounting places going by its size. By memory they are 700mm wide, like the standard shroud and radiator on the EB. The AU is about 50 mm narrower, but they still fit after drilling a couple of holes in the shroud and trimming the top plastic off (that was only for the air intake).

I actually wired them up like fitting a set of aftermarket thermos, using a Davies Craig adjustable thermostat, they have fitting instructions for fans with them (cost about $45 at Repco) and using a 60amp fusible link. They are wired up off the accessories. The fans themselves should have their own wiring for operating, which I used as well. I have not had a problem with them and they work like a charm.

They are a lot better then the clutch fan giving you a lot more room in the front of the engine bay. I was after a set of EL ones but got these AU ones, which were brand new and really cheap of a mate's mate who works at a Ford dealership. Not only do they still keep the car cool but the engine appears to operate a lot smoother, even with the air on. Good luck.
