    I have a 94 'burb with the belt driven fan and was looking into swapping it out for an electric fan setup from Flex-A-Lite. Problem, is, I can't find a dealer that sells part #280 that Flex-A-Lite says is for my application. Anyone have a good source? Anyone know how difficult of a swap this would be?

    The swap isnt that hard providing the fan fasteners arent siezed. Wiring is straight forward with good instructions, should take a couple hours at most.

    why waste all that mony on a flex o junk fan? ( i never had good luck wit them) got the junk yard and get a fan from a ford Tarus 3.8 car ot Tbird. these have a high and a low speed and sell for $15 then get a electric fan install kit $15 and a constant duty relay $10-$30 depending on where you go. i installed one of these in many different cars, trucks and my motorhome (502 Big Block).
