Question about 1987 Ford Ranger
In other words, the fan blades each have a thick, squared off edge and a thinner, flare-curved (feathering) edge, but which fan blade edge is leading and which is trailing as over all fan turns with the engine? The fan was sold by Autozone or maybe by Kragen. It is white in color. I cannot figure how to post a picture.
I;ll guess you are talking about the fan that cools the engine. If this is the case the fan will (in most cases) be located behind the radiator. If this is the case install the fan blades so it will pull air through the radiator. However if this is an electric fan that is mounted outside the radiator, then install the fan to push air into the radiator. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "I have all that but the clutch will mount to the fan hub on both sides so the the blades leading edges lead and trailing edges trail (the fan blades do not go backwards). I need to know which is the leading edge of each blade so that it draws air and turns smoothly and quietly without turbulence or excess vibration leading to damage. I have tried posting a photo but that does not seem to work."
