Son got the fan working in his new to him Ford tractor. Has system in the ceiling for heat. 3 speed fan, adjustable louvers to put air where you want.
Tarzan would be a good name for the tractor Dave.

Nice thing about liquid cooled is the option for a heater . Good thing he got it working . Sounds like a nice set up.

Son got my truck back on the go, if any body is interested. He checked the codes. And there was a lot of them. Figured blown fuse. Then knew it was a short some where. But where ? That circuit had wires all over the truck. So with in 15 minutes found the trouble. Wire going to e vap thing had a wire touching the cross member. Short out. Removed wire. And put out of way. Will fix when on his hoist some day. Truck will run with out that e vap thing. I doubt I’d ever find some thing like that. :106:

Wow he did a great job finding it fast! That could have taken a lot of time tracking down wires. Glad your back on the road. My daily driver throws an evap code sometimes too. Not to worried about it never has gone into limp mode yet.

Glad to see you got it going again . That is most likely the evap purge solenoid . for what it takes fix it . If the canister gets saturated you could have problems filling the tank . .

Electrical gremlins like that can be a total nightmare, and the worst if all when intermittent. He's real good finding it so fast! :O :thumbsup:

engine oil heater finally installed .
400 watt (120v) 1/2" npt in oil drain port in pan .

Oil will now be drained via the cross drilled hole at the base of the dip stick tube as it is right by the lift arm .

not as convenient , but is only done twice a year, so no big deal .
I could remove the heater to drain the oil but then it would be all over the frame and don't want to risk damaging it .
