write up for electric fan install

I'm looking for a write-up on installing an electric fan for my 87 I6... changed everything you possibly can on the cooling system except doing a compression test (which will be done this weekend). For some reason it still overheats (goes to 220) ... any help would be great guys...

electric fan won't help you if your current fan is working properly. in fact, it could hurt you

what have you replaced in your cooling system thus far?

i run at 210 here it sucks. im thinking about adding cutting a hole in my hood and installing a mini radiator up there and just adding more plumbing and a small electric fan on it.

the main problems with my YJs cooling is the lack of a heater core. ( one less place for water to go and displace the heat )

I had an issue with cooling and then I just replaced the clutch fan and it solved the roblem. perhaps you should try that.

I am in the process of finding someone who will louver my hood so I can fab up a flex-a-lite fan to the top to push hot air out. maybe that will work.
