Default Complete electric fan setup for 58-60 T-bird

Dual fans with shroud (new unit from Rockauto) plus Flex A Lite fan controller (part # 31163).

Requires only 3.5" of space between the radiator and water pump pulley.

Just bolt it in; install the temp sensor, and attach the red wire to your starter solenoid.

It's laying in my shop waiting on me.

So why are you selling now? Looks like you had it installed?
Have been thinking of doing the dual fan!

Went back to a 6-blade mech. fan and a shroud. Temp is in control now when driving around, but slowly climbs when sitting.

With the new engine (a hopped-up 460) and the electric fans, the temp would slowly climb at highway speeds.

Seems I had to pick one or the other, and can't have it both ways right now!

The setup I am selling would be fine for anyone with a 352 or 390 in their car.

This might be an issue for me also, I purchased a 410 short block and in the process of hopping it up. Can I ask what shroud you used on your fan now and was it an easy fit?

I have a cheap, chromed half-shroud that I bought from Speedway for like 35 bucks. Better than nothing at all, for sure.

What I want to eventually do is have a full shroud fabbed up out of sheet metal.

I got the best cooling efficiency with the fan blades positioned halfway into the shroud. The 6-blade fan I have is a rigid unit; not one of those "flex" fans. 17" diameter.
