I want to know about how to install an electric motor-driven radiator cooling fan instead of the belt-driven one.

  • Vehicle: 1998 Mitsubishi-fuso fm617
  • Engine: Mitsubishi 6d16 diesel engine (radiator fan driven by belt in original)
  • Type: truck

    Not to be crass here, but you should just find one on the internet (Flex-a-lite makes a bunch of different models) which fits and follow their directions. I put one of their Monster Fan kits on my '04 Suburban. It worked very well. Measure the size of your radiator and go from there, as I doubt they make one specific for your application. The ones which have their own temperature probe and controller will be your best bet. There would be no way to tell you how to install it over the internet ... not any better than the instructions, anyway. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Oct 6 '14 at 21:57

    Another option is to search the Internet for a suitable used fan from another vehicle. I looked into it years back for an old van, and there were plenty of tutorials on using a fan setup from another vehicle by the same manufacturer, and that means peanuts in price. However, I opted to install one of the fan clutches that engages the fan only when it gets hot enough, as that was a lot easier. – Paul Oct 8 '14 at 20:37
  • Just wondering why OP needs to do this? Is there something wrong with the current belt driven one? – rana Aug 10 '15 at 15:49
