I plan on trying some electric fans and wanted to know if anyone had
some good recommendations on alternative upper radiator mounts.
The OEM mounts for this truck are made with the shroud. I plan
on removing the shroud to setup the electric fans so I would need
another style bracket to mount the radiator to the core support.
I thought about modifying a old crappy shroud for the radiator mounts
but don't think that would look to good or work that well.
I know on some of the older vehicles they have separate brackets that
ran from the core support to the radiator with the rubber inserts for
the left and right mounts for the radiator.
Anyone have any suggestions. I may have the same problem on the
lower radiator mounts also. I've not looked into that just yet.
Well I don't really like "crap" and thats what a cut up shroud will
look like. I've not looked close enough yet but I think the shroud is
to close to the radiiator on the sides for this to work, plus I just
got the fans today (leaving the shroud intact).
I did find these which look they would work fairly easy.
THe link above point to some ford radiator mounts. I've not
physcially seen them but they looks as if they might solve the
Cutting up a shroud would be the absolute last choice. I'm sure that
either I could fabricate something better or I could find someone who
could at least do a half-ass job.
The other part of this.....is that I want something I can remove if it
sucks and go back to the OEM fan clutch. Don't plan on doing any
welding, at least not to the vehicle itself.
