clutch fan

I have a 96 damon intruder with a ford 460 engine. After the engine was replaced with a new jasper engine, the clutch fan so noisy you can't talk when the fan engages. Someone told me aftermarket clutch fans are alot nosier than ford original parts. Anyone have this problem or info on this subject?

Is it possible your old one never engaged so your not used to the noise?

I found after having clutch fan issues on a Chevrolet Chassis . I tried aftermarket ones with no success as they came on and took forever to dis-engage. I bought one from Chevrolet and it worked perfect .

the fan and clutch are doing their jobs if you hear them come on....fans have to make noise to move air...and moving air keeps you from overheating

be glad you can hear it, so you know it is working

Early 90's Dodge Dakota's with V-8s Chrysler got so many complaints about the fan noise they issued a change up fan , and on every truck we changed the fan on we had to get the owner to sign paperwork that he understood that the quieter fan reduced his trailer tow capacity by 2,000lbs, and give him a new owners manual with the same info.
That been said, have you checked all the engine compartment seals ?
Engine change something could have been disturbed.
If Jasper supplied the new clutch fan with the engine; or required the unit be changed; , changing it could void your engine warranty.
