when i bought the rig, the stock fan clutch was junk, and the fan shroud was missing, electric e fan had cracked mounts. so why replace, when you can upgrade right?
decided on a e fan upgrade all around.
started with some sheet aluminum.
marked out the fan locations, and cut them out.
made a simple jig for the plasma cutter.
ended up with this.
test fitted the fans befor i put it in the brake for the edges.
welded up the edges.
then tacked in some seperator plates to prevent "cross flow" of the fans.
test fitted the fans on the radiator. the original closed system had cracks in the tanks, so i upgrade to a newer open style radiator.
installed new radiator
added a auto fan relay with a late model t stat housing holding the thermo sensors, 2 fans click on auto and off auto, third fan sits in front of the trans cooler, and is manually controlled.
