I'm trying to get a definitive parts list together for the ford Taurus fan swap. It seems like the more reading I do, the more complicated and confusing it seems.
Sounded easy at first but (btw wiring is my weakest point right now...) the more I read, I think I'm getting information overload. Is there a single thread/write up that spells it out that hasn't blown up to 50+ pages, with a little info hidden on each page? Apparently my search skills aren't as great as I thought they were.

/frazzled

Thanks in advance boys and girls.

Cheers

Fan
Volvo relay
Saab inline housing for the upper rad. hose
VW/Porsche thermo switch
Few feet of 12g wire w connectors.
30a switch for the manual on/off

I don't think I'm missing anything but if I am, definitely chime it peeps. It's a pretty easy swap. I did it in an afternoon and I'm not super electrically incline. I used one of the revised diagrams on the Taurus fan swap thread.

When you get it figured out, make a short, to the point, pics included post or thread.
I have two fans sitting on a shelf. I too went into infoverload.
Seems a relay, a toggle switch, temp sensor, wire and a fan should be all you would need.

Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!

I don't think you'd need a 30a switch if you're connecting to the Volvo relay for manual on/off. And if you aren't using the Volvo for manual on off I figure you'd need another relay?

Printing the list right now
Thanks bud! If I run into problems, I'll PM ya about them if that's cool. I wasn't able to make it to the JY yesterday as planned; had to help some friends move, but I'll make it on Saturday to source parts.

Barrel jack on one end for power in, most 120v->12v DC wallplugs fit into that, the other end of two wires is for adding more strips. I just cut off the barrel jack and soldered on the connections I wanted

There is an easier way... Yes you can source all of those parts. The inline temp housing is the tricky one. There is a kit that you can get from Kragen or whatever your local jobber is that is all inclusive and runs about $40. I will look back at the original thread for the part number I posted. That way all you need is the fan. I have the Volvo relays if you still want to go that route. You are welcome to them.

The great uniting factor is that we are all jeepers at heart and are willing to help each other out even if its just a little. That's what the jeep wave is all about: community. The wave is the tip of the iceberg.

No problemo! And yep, they also fit arduinos if you use those. I saved the jacks I cut off to make battery packs for the arduino projects I have going.




Today I decided to try my hand at welding once again, I know MIG is preferred for thin stuff like exhaust pipe etc but really careful going with the stick welder at 40amps on the smallest rods I could find and it went pretty well. They don't look great but I was shocked how quiet the jeep was after I patched up a leak and replaced the crappy clamps and metal joints with beefier joints and welded it all together... While I had the skid plate off I replaced the weird bolts that came with the skyjacker trans/t-case drop kit (I know, drop kit =bad. SYE=good).

Only pic I have is this one. It came out in two pieces (the bit with the shiny thing before the Cat is what I leater welded on) the previous clamp had given up and just didn't feel like staying on lol
