I deleted my old stock cooling fan blade.I am replacing it with a Electric Radiator Fan.

You need at least two, one would not keep it cool. More important check to see what CFM it produce.

From what I understand an electric fan from a Lincoln Mark 7or8 is a single 19" and people have said it works fine. The Dodge Intrepid fans I have work well(that has two fans). I like to see a comparison between the two.

I've also heard good things about the Linclon Mark 8 fan as well as the Dodge Intrepid dual fans.

Here is a pic of my Taurus single fan after I took out the radiator for the frame off. This one fan works awesome...no over heating and keeps my 406 at 190* all day in the worst of heat. thumbs

One day I will make a shroud to cover the whole radiator. But you really can't see it when it is inside the stock fan shroud. It will push air out of the hood lines when it is on...and it's pretty quiet.

Those mark 8 fans pull something like 3500cfm on low and 5000 on the high setting. One of the best bangs for your buck. I want to upgrade my fan to this one.

Right now Im running a 16" single fan, it's run on a constant hot when the key is turned. So no thermostat, or toggle switch. It works good, it was a $30 Ebay fan so I cant complain. It runs about 180-190 on a hot day, and gets close to 200 if I end up in traffic.

Check out this Ebay add. It gives a list at the bottom of all the vehicles it fits ( or that you can find one on!). Short answer is 93-97.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/93-94-95-96-97-INTREPID-L-RADIATOR-FAN-MOTOR-/230653266388?fits=Model:Intrepid|Make:Dodge&hash=item35b40189d4&item=230653266388&pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&vxp=mtr#ht_2899wt_998

For the markVIII fan, it is reported that the 97up is the best fan. Mine is an earlier one (95 I believe) and is single speed. it does push a lot of air, but draws a lot of current.

I've been looking at this fan as a potential. They came on Cadillacs and Aurora's. List of cars they come on on this listing.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-RADIATOR-FAN-COOLING-DUAL-CADILLAC-DEVILLE-CAR-PART-/270840990181?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Model%3AAurora&vxp=mtr&hash=item3f0f6189e5#ht_4481wt_1139

Just not sure if they are too wide, so need a trip to the pick and pull to check them out. They have a lot of blades on the fans, so cooling should be great. I also like the idea of two fans, in case one of the motors go out ( you can still get home).

This fan assembly is the new "fan of Choice" for Jeep off roaders. Pulls a lot of air. Not so easy to find in the pick and full. Only found on Mercury Mystique and Cougars.

I just Googled and found Intrepid fans all the way to 2004. Later models use two flat motors, gives you more clearance and "maybe" pull more air then early version using a large and small motor.
Here's a picture of my early fans:

If you do get used ones from the junk yard get the pigtail lead with it.
As you can see I'm using the V-Belt setup and have no problems with clearance.

If you got a Pull-A-Part near you then you can pick up a cooling fan cheap. I paid $20 for my my Intrepid fans. $10 per fan. I got maybe $150 in my whole set-up. And they're automatic! It'd be $50 cheaper if you use toggle switches. I bought what was in the DIY writeup.

This is the controller I used for my fans. Bought it at Advance Auto. I like it because it has a temp sensor that is installed in the coolant not through the radiator fins.

Thats alot better than the fins one. I had the thru the fins one felt like it would take forever for my fans to turn on some times I would hit 210 215* before I heard them crank on
