Hey all. My fan clutch has decided to poop out so I'm trying to find a good quality and hopefully relatively inexpensive electric radiator fan. What have you mini guys found works the best?

ive used the 16" electric ones that autozone sells.. the work good but i dont reccomend it.. just kinda a POS.. works, but pos

dont skimp on a electric fan, because if it goes out your motor is literally on the line

The Taurus fan works great. I've been through a bunch of controllers (SPAL, Hayden, etc), but the fans are good, and cheap.

EDIT: See post #36 in this thread (http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=875493&highlight=year+taurus). Actually, the whole thread is pretty good.

Look on Pirate. I want to say early - mid '90's. They can usually be had for $25-75 at junkyards.

Thanks Mark! If I don't wanna sully my Toy with Ford parts are there any good new options?

SULLY your Toy with FORD parts??!?!?!? Harumph! Shadowfax ain't gonna speak to ya.

Really, by reputation the Taurus fan really is the shiz... Or... you can rebuild your Toyota fan clutch with new fluid. BTDT.
