    Does anyone know if they make a 6,7,or 8 blade fan that mounts on the fan clutch? Or will i have to switch over to a direct drive fan? 88 F-150/351 that used to have AC, took the condenser out to try to flow more air

    Try a bigger race car parts place like Summitracing.com
    I got my new fan there. You have to figure out which direction the fan blades go before you order it.
    Keep the fan clutch, it lets the fan disconnect at higher speeds to save money on fuel.
    If it runs hot at highway speeds with the blade on, angle it and drop it down
    for better air flow.

    Most water pumps have the same size bolt pattern for the fan. I installed a big block Chrysler fan on my CJ-5 with a small block chevy in it. It worked out real well. I tried the aftermarket flex fans and they did not move enough air at low speeds.
