    Does the blizzard snowfoil really work? Can it be adapted to other snowplows, like western,meyers & fisher? Got any idea what they cost? I appreciate all info you can give. Thanks

    Why not buy the Snow deflector for your plow from the manufacture of the plow ? They all make them to fit there own blades. Sno Foils are different then deflectors. Blizzard makes a deflector.

    Deflector

    I plan on getting a snow deflector to help control the air, but still need to channel more air to the radiator to aid in cooling. My other plans are to scrap my 2 core & go to a 4 core radiator, & add a tranny cooler rated for a 26,000 lb truck. Everytime i took it out last winter, i was living on the edge of boilover. (angled right & 2" off the road) Thanks for all ideas.

    Yes, The air deflectors work well. They cost about $100.00. You mount them on top of the Blizzard plow and adjust the angle. The air will flow right into the radiator. I have installed them on several plows the customers said they work great.

    I have installed them on Fords 1999-205 F250-F350-F550s with 8611 plows and 810 plow set ups. The 8611 rises over the top of the hood when raised up. This air deflector solved the heating issue.

    88 F-150

    I have an 1988 F-150 XLT Lairiat with a 5.8 351, 7.5' western ultramount plow & those dumb flange mount hubs. It had AC that would have worked if i had it recharged, but i took the condenser off. I like the wind in whats left of my hair anyway.

    SnowStooge3:
    Make sure your fan clutch is working, the fan should not be turnable by hand when it's hot (and not running). It should be "roaring"(engine) when it's hot. You describe a common Ford problem with plow trucks. Try running at 50 or 45 MPH on the highway or running the vent or A/c on high when it gets close to overheating. Try different plow angles too. Make sure snows not blocking the grill when it's cold and powder snow.
    My Dad owned plow trucks since 1973 and it's always been a problem with (close to overheating) with each truck.
