Finally, a find on my declutching fan issue

After years of trying to figure out why my declutching was kicking in at 180 degrees I decided to remove the 2 electric fans from in front of the condenser and radiator assy. I ran for 4 hours in 90 plus degree temperatures the engine got up to 195 degrees and the declutching fan never came on. It was such a nice relatively quiet ride without the 747 jet running under the doghouse! Those electric fans never did do anything to cool the engine or A/C unit.

JMHO: Wait till you're stuck in traffic for 10/15 mins .

I'd put them back and wire them through a dash switch , so they're there when you need them.

Well believe it or not I was stuck in traffic waiting a half an hour to pay a toll at the bridge. It actually cooled back to 180 degrees. And I did put in over ride switches years ago and it still didn't help.
