Re: Replacing Fanclutch???

for 85 bucks i would just get an electric fan and thermostsat....just remove the clutch fan altogether..then put 4 short 10 mm bolts in the water pump pully,what all this means is you wont have fan sucking down horse power from the engine....and when crawling you will have a great deal of air moveing through the radiator even at an idle,this is agood thing, because most of the stuff we do is fairly low when the motor is at about 2000 rpm the clutch fan stops woking {turning-pulling air}because you should be going 10 to 20 mph.....but if your 1 mph and your fan has shut off because of the rpm your truck isnt going fast enough to force air through the the radiator,so its gonna heat up with an electric the motor/truck speed is a non issue because the electric fan has only one speed and thats you can run up a 9% grade in first gear low range at 2000-3000 rpm {which is slow} and not worry about over heating because the #$%^^ clutch fan stoped turning ....hapy wrenching

You will need to remove the radiator fan shroud with the fan to avoid scraping the radiator fins.

4 bolts hold the shroud on and four nuts on the waterpump pulley. Use an open end wrench on the nuts.
