Viscous fans are way overpriced. Much better to fit an aftermarket electric one.....they are much more effective, and dont drain valuable engine power when they come on, unlike viscous ones.

Agree, Matt. I have a bit of a clearance problem with 350SDL ... can just barely get arm down between coolant pump pulley and radiator or I might have tried it.

I had my fan clutch replaced on my 140 last month....bouught the part for about $160 at fast lane....dealer wanted about $400......car seems to run a bit cooler but it does seem to make a whiring noise at about 1200-2000rpm(very small actually ..no one else would notice)...other tha that all is good...the dealer replaced the belt tensioner and belt about 14 months ago
