believe me, I would love to slap the 429 in (71 non egr ram air 429 intecepter with only 30,000 original miles !!!!), but I need to round up all the small bits to make the mod work,and every time I start looking at it the list grows. Motor mounts, exhaust manifolds and pipe,remote oil filter,rad and hoses and shroud(unless i can steal em from the t-bird),beef up the trans and then most definately GEARS.Maybe a front d60.. So list goes on.and on and on but at least ive got the heart for the future beast. Until then Im just trying to do some of the mods I can use for now, and a clutch fan would help mileage and help stop the fan from eating the rad and swamping me when i hit the so called "it doesnt look THAT deep " holes.
So the question of the day i guess is..is there any way to fab a clutch fan onto a 79 bronco with a 400????

send pics, send prices?? sorry for the laugh, but after driving the t-bird with the 429 i,ve had dreams of that big block in the bronco.T-bird was a 4000 lb car and it eats new mustangs for breakfast so it just has to go in the truck one of these days, but for now the 400 will have to do.
