have a known overheating issue with 96 Escorts

After much frustration and replacing the H272 and H271 relays (High and Low speed $54.00 for both of them) for the radiator cooling fan I found that the
relay in the external fuse box that is marked fuel injection is actually for the fan as well. This relay is part number H270 and was readily available at AutoZone for $15.99. I spoke with a guy at a local shop and he stated this fact to me and that it is caused by the fan motor pulling too many amps and that if I looked there would be a contact that was bubbled. Lo and behold, there it was. The mechanic recommended that the fan motor be replaced as well because it is the root cause, however I think the fan comes as an assembly with the shroud and fan and is about $250. Chilton books suck, at least the ones you buy at the auto parts store as it didn't mention all three of the relays. What is the best general maintenance books?
Just thought this might be helpful to someone.

I will check because I definately need to school myself in Fords. I guess it's not really an overheating problem as much as it is an electrical issue.
Thanks again
