contour fan writeup?

I've searched here, pirate, and google, but I'm still stuck...

I'm looking for a link (or anything really) to a writeup or something laying out how to do the Contour fan swap. I'm out of the state and my brother in law is doing this for me, but I need something to get him going.

Also, which specific cars (year/engine) will he need to look for at the junkyard?


Thanks!

the link in post 2 at jeep-cj is my write up from a while back.

It is really not hard to do. You will need to source a contour fan, remove the four bolts holding on the manual fan, and either build brackets or use radiator straps to hold the fan in place. I suggest building brackets as the fans weight on those plastic straps can damage the radiator fins. If the four bolts holding the fan also mount the pulley onto the water pump you may need to source shorter bolts to bolt the pulley back up I can't remember.
I also suggest using this controller http://www.summitracing.com/parts/FLX-31165/ instead of the universal ones they sell at the parts houses because it works better and lasts longer.

Thats about everything if you have any more questions feel free to ask. Also you might want to consider if your alternator has enough oomph to handle the added amperage draw from 2 fans.

I used the same contoller and works great... NO problems what so ever.. Send me your email and I will attach a PDF of my wiring of the controller.... I can't figure out how to attach a PDF....
Maybe will help...

They pretty much bolt right up.



How you want to wire it depends on if you want to use a controller, thermostatic switches, or a simple switch. Here is an example of how I wired mine with the standard Flex-A-Lite two fan controller. I added in a switch to manually turn them on, off or let the controller do it automatically with the thermistor probe in the radiator fins.

Wow, I finished this awhile ago, but that's a great schematic for the controller. I'm planning to wire in an on/auto/off switch in, so I'll be back for that!

I never noticed the original post date, just trying to help out. This might help someone else in the future doing a search.

If you're ever looking for a specific variance on wiring the fans, let me know what you're looking for as I am pretty good at working up specific schematics.

Since I'm only now doing this swap to cool down my 360 I've received a couple of "this thread is dead" notes, perhaps the moderator might consider collectively putting all the wiring diagram suggestions and other errata in a stickie?

Okay gang, after being frustrated by failed attempts at getting part nos. I decided to go back to the boneyard and found these;

The text on the green one reads;
Ford C8F6A
93B6 8C616 AA
RELAT ASY.
ENG. COOL.
FAN CONTR.
12V-
[PA6-G30





The text on the normal sized one reads;
FORD G1UHD
93BG 14N089 CA
V23136-J4-X1

12V 70A

PA


Can anyone tell me if these are correct and what's up with the oversized green one?
