Went to the junk yard today to try to get some parts for my build and have a coulple of questions...
1. I found a set of dual fans from a 1994 Taurus SHO… is this a good fan swap if I’m looking to do an electric fan in my Jeep? Or are there other vehicles with better fans that I need to be looking for?
2. I’ve got a stock tilt steering column (GM) that I want to rebuild, but there seems to be some broken parts in it. What other GM vehicles used the same tilt column that I have now?
The Contour fan is very popular with a number of groups of vehicle owners. The Mustang crowd likes them, the early Bronco crowd likes them, the CJ crowd likes them, etc. Demand is pretty high for them. That's not a bad price if the junkyard is the type where they pull the parts and inventory them. If it's a U-Pull-It type, it's pretty high, IMO. I paid $45 for mine I think.
My jy won't let you pull your own parts... they pull them for you. Tried to talk him down to $80, but he won't budge. Can anyone else give my their opinion on the price I was quoted? (Sure wish I could find some of those $60 and $45 deals!)
I got my dual fans from a 99 mercury cougar. Perfect fit and it has two stage cooling built in. paid about 20 bucks for mine. $10 for universal clips and about $30 or $40 for the thermo-controller (universal from Oriellys) whole thing works great!
