Does anyone out there know of a fan part number and manufacture WITHOUT a
clutch that will work on my 96 Dakota 4x4 ext cab 5.2 V8? Replaced cooling
system last fall (all hoses, belts, radiator, system flush, HD thermostat)
and engine still runs hot when outside temps are above 80 degrees or when
towing or when traveling with plow in in winter time. Absolutely no loss
of fluid in system before or since replacement of above parts. Also
replaced clutch fan, original wouldn't lock up until I pulled over and
shut engine down when gauge read warm and restarted..fan on engine now
doesn't lock up at all.
You will need spacers and adapters too:
I think I'd keep a clutch fan or swap it to an electric. I wouldn't want my
fan constantly robbing power and fuel mileage when it's not needed.
Flex-a-lite sells those too.
I is quite possible to recalibrate the clutch operating tempature. I
have plowed for years with clutch fans and I have no over heating
issues ever Check out link below, it realy works!
