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.
