  3. Fan rotation

    General Discussion
    I will be curious to see how that works out......It says its only good for 15A though.........I'm pretty sure my fan pulls more than that......unless I am not understanding how you are going to wire it up...........I've never hooked an ammeter up to it yet, but when I connected my battery...

    I've got a fan from an '06 Lincoln Zephyr in my '78 with a 4BTA........It came with a "black box" that I presume was a PWM controller.........I pitched it in the trash because I had no clue how to make it work without the Lincoln ECM............Kinda wish I would have done some more research to...

    General Discussion
    I would try to get it for as little as possible........try and dig thru that pile of parts and account for all the pieces/parts and if you find a serious problem down the line.......you might have some good parts to sell to help recoup some of your costs............basket cases are always a...

  12. Difference in VE Pumps

    Cummins Tech Section
    I would like a pic if you can.....mainly of the correct sensor. I pulled a couple of sensors out way back when after I got the engine.....wasn't sure what they were, but knew I didn't need them for basic operation of the engine, so I pulled them out.......Been so long ago, that I don't even...

    Thanks........using an online calculator, I came up with a figure of 362 CFM on a 4.0L Naturally aspirated gas engine @6000 RPM @ 85% Volumetric efficiency.......think I'll give it a try and put a vac guage or manometer on it and see what it does........I think I'm there........

    eggman918.......have seen your setup before and may consider going that route..............char1355.......I thought I would try to find some specs on it before I commit.....how much airflow in CFM are we talking to supply a stock 4BT???? I've asked that question in the forums before but never...
  19. Ford Explorer air cleaner for a 4BTA

    General Discussion
