fitted and tested it today seems to have done the trick had ity idling in the drive for about 30 mins fan cut in and out good water flow no creeping on the guage so just have to test it on a run now . it does look like it belongs there I did use some 10 mm adhesive tape between the fan and shroud and man does it push some air, draws some amps too think I may have to take my power from the battery not the solenoid

Your alternator supplies the current to the car circuits not the battery, what size is your alternator?

You can hear what? Every car will have a big idle dip due to load with these big ford fans. If you connect it to the same post the battery cable goes to on the solenoid, it's essentially connected to the battery anyway so don't change it

There is no use going higher unless you think the current one is not handling the load.
You can put a meter across your battery when it's under load to test it.

Warm the car up so the fan is cycling and turn your headlights on etc to put load on it.
You should have 13.5-14.5 volts at the battery for it to charge.

it fluctuates from 13.4 to 13.8 with headlights on and fan running
fan only sits at 14.0 to 14.2
maybe because the cam is quite lumpy the idle is a little rough
