Does anyone have a picture of a Taurus Fan installed ? I plan on installing mine next week , and I need some mounting ideas . I have a stock style radiator . I already have the wireing figured out .

Thanks, Chris

Don't you just put it against the radiator and use those push through zip tie things to hold it?

Had one in my Camaro for many years and when the radiator was removed (to put in my 63) it showed no signs of wear. I guess I'm not worried about it.

I was thinking more of bolting it in somehow . I have used the pull thru fastners on transmission coolers , without a problem . I thought the fan might be too heavy for those .

I was also wondering if any one was using both speeds , and how they had it wired
I ordered an adjustable fan control I plan on hooking up to low with a relay. I thought of hooking up hi spd. with a temp sender in the manifold with 2 relays in paralell . On temp around 200F - 210F ?
any ideas?

I have the low speed setup with the temp control. It kicks in at about 200 and off at about 185. The high speed side is set up thru a toggle switch in case of an emergency. The hi / low thing seems to want to bleed over. I have leds attached red lite for hi speed and blue lite for low speed. I probably should put a diode in the lite curciuts because the hi speed curciut turns both lites on.
The low speed setting does keep the temp under control.

I can try to take some pictures tomorrow (or later today, really :p). I bolted it to the core support. I tried to use factory holes wherever I could, but I think I had to drill a tiny hole. It doesn't look very professional, but I tried my best. And it was free. :)

Depends on how long you want the radiator to last...
Most radiator shops love the zip tie approach, keeps them busy !

Here's how to wire one for two speeds. When the 190° switch closes, the LO coil is pulled in and low speed is activated. When the 210° switch closes, R3 coil is pulled in, the LO coil is released, the HI coil is pulled in and the fan is in high speed. When the 210° switch opens the HI coil is released, the LO coil is piched up and you're back to low speed. You don't want both speeds energized at the same time. A 30 amp relay will suffice for the LO relay, but you want something more substantial for the HI relay. I use some 50 amp Tyco relays I got real cheap on eBay.
