    Who's running electric fans? Wondering about single, dual, big, little whatever that will keep a big block with a four core radiator happy in all seasons. Suggestions?

    I've got 2 dual speed Ford fans on my truck. I also run a 454, w/a 4 core radiator. I had overheating problems last year before these fans... but BEWARE... I had to buy a new alternator to support the power draw these puppies require!

    You can find them off any late 80's early 90's Tarus. GREAT fans! I only paid $20 for each of them. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Did you have to build a shroud to mount them? Thanks.

    I am running a hot 454 and by misstake I am running dual electric fans that were original ordred for my wifes 88 2500 but they use 2 14" fans and a molded fan shroud that didnt fit the 88 so I made it fit the blazer. They work great even beter then the mech fan.
