Our reproduction fans come with a lifetime warranty. Each fan has been balanced beyond factory specifications and will withstand RPM's far beyond what any V-8 can achieve.
In addition to all the original big block applications, these fans offer an excellent upgrade for any small block Ford that has been transformed into a modern day, high performance power-plant. More horse power means more heat and almost nothing will kill an engine faster than excessive heat. Even if you do not have a high performance engine, just boring your cylinders in the process of doing a stock rebuild will often tax your cooling system significantly. Ford referred to this fan as the "Power Booster Fan" in their sales literature. The thermal clutch governs how fast the fan will spin. During start up, cold day, and moderate freeway driving, this fan is basically free wheeling. In addition to providing maximum cooling when called upon, this fan is designed to save you fuel, add horsepower and reduce engine noise!
