jsutton is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I have a 30 amp fuse on the low setting 12V to the fan and I have an 80 amp fusible link to the high setting 12V.

I finished the fan install last night. We are getting ready to take the Crew on a camping trip and have zero time to go to the bone yard so, don't laugh, I bought a new fan. At the advice of David Chapman of the Hollister Company I ordered the T-Bird fan, TYC part no. 620950. I bought it from Amazon, $77 and free shipping. I used the Hollister kit, 180 switch, 200 switch and A/C relay. It is a very nice kit if you don't want to piece it together yourself. David is very helpful as well.

The fan seems to work really well. I'll be testing it soon towing our camper.

I know this is a pretty old thread, but it helped me a lot. And now I'm looking to do this mod.
I plan to go to the jy and pick up a fan next check, build my own brackets and I plan to use the wiring kit from Hollister co.

I do have a few questions though.

What are the best cars to get the fan from, the Mark 8 and t bird. Any others?
What part besides the fan might I need from the car? Connectors?
where does the temp sensor kit screw into the manifold?
how does it read the temps?
would it work an Edelbrock 4 barrel manifold?

  • Lincoln Mark VIII, T-Bird, or Taurus
  • The fan and its plug. Get as much of the wiring to the plug as possible.
  • Temp sensor is mounted in the same place as the OEM sender. Or keep the OEM sender and use a T-fitting... Or mount it in the thermostat housing. Ya didn't say what engine ya got..... but FE housings have a boss that usually has a pipe plug.
  • Temp senders operate via resistance.
  • Yes.

Thank you for the detailed help and pictures!
I'm sorry I forgot to mention I have a 79 f150 with a 351m built to the 400. soon to have the Edelbrock 4 barrel setup. I also installed a dual battery system with a 180 amp alternator so I should be set there.


I'd really like to keep the stock gauge working I now have a pretty good idea of the actual temps on the gauge as I've checked with my ir heat gun. The t is for me then ha ha.

So from what I've gathered it is the same fan for both the v8 and v6 then?

Any other tips I should know before attempting this install?

Thanks. The pics are of my '70 with a 360FE... removal of the mechanical fan, spacer, and should frees up lotsa room.

I'm swapping to the Edebrock E-Street EFI and the comes with software to control a two speed electric fan.... adjustable too via the tablet interface.

Sho' thing.

The fan you're looking for has a three-wire plug. You do have the option of getting a dual fan set-up from the Taurus. The same principles apply.

I just emailed David Chapman at Hollister and he was super helpful! Ha you don't get to many people mailing back on a Saturday.
But I've got my shopping list and I'm excited to get rolling on this soon.
Also rock auto has these fans new for 70$ just in case you went a brand new one instead of 10 years old. And I feel that's still a good deal.
Thanks for all the help and reviving an old thread!

David at Hollister really helped me with my set up. Very good customer service in my opinion.

David recommended the TYC brand to me as a supplier for the fan. I ordered TYC part no. 620950. It has a lifetime warranty.

David now has the BMW dual temp switch and the necessary metric to NPT adapter to mount into our manifolds or thermostat housing. I plan to change my setup in the future to this. I currently have a pipe with a bung in it for the hi speed switch on my upper radiator hose. I got this from David as well.
