Re: Fan Issues

Hey Moonshiner,

Would agree to replace the clutch....having said that, depends on what you are doing with your ride. If you tow lots and heavy....stick with stock...if not and want a project then build an E-fan system. I built one that you can pull off in a few minutes and it works well....provided I don't tow my Travel trailer or bigger...6-7k lbs. So for just rippin' around and if you want a project then do it.....I used twin Taurus fans hooked to a thermocoupler with a manual over ride. Have some pix in my truck folder link. Again if you tow best to stick with stock though...
