Hi, I am just reviving this thread to ask if anyone has gone electric on a 1990 D21 with a standard (not custom) radiator? Will the recommended two fan aftermarket unit bolt up or would I have to get creative? The controls and wiring is not an issue - that is kind of my hobby expertise.

I am taking the front end of the engine off on my way to changing head gaskets and would prefer to not put the stock fan back on. I have some finger scars from an old injury resulting from a fan mishap I would like to never repeat, and I like the idea of anything to make it quieter in there for listening for problem sounds.

You can get the altima fan that will fit the stock radiator just fine. Covered on here many times. This conversion is the same for v6 and 4cyl. Same radiators in both, only difference is thickness.

The write-up is very thorough but i bought everything in the links from amazon and the fan assembly is much too wide and short for my 88 SE V6's radiator. Am i missing something or was the link to a wrong part? The part number from the link is TYC 620420 but if you look up an 01 maxima, its TYC 620360. Either way, the measurements on the fans measure larger than my radiator, which matches the dimensions on rock auto for a D21 rad. My fan clutch locked up so i need a fix but i really don't want to sink more money into the old technology.

Also, it's not clear if you have to get the pigtails from a junkyard car or put spades on the 4 pin connectors from the fan (or just the sockets off the fan's connectors and splice from there)

If you got the right part then it should fit the stock radiator fine. As for the pigtails, you either source the plugs or cut them off and splice them in. I recommend getting the plugs for ease of removal. Altima's are a dime a dozen in the yards.
