Fan Clutch ? Speed up/Slow down at idle
I changed out my fan clutch to the Autozone, Torqflo (CompressorWorks) version. It is definitely smaller and lighter than the Hayden, which OReily's sells and the Ford which I replaced. I'm not sure my old one was really bad, but I thought it may be the source of a noise I was hearing. Autozone and Torqflo (the part number is 922837) say the clutch is for "severe duty", but I'm wondering.
Hopefully, someone has had experience with the fan clutch market and can comment.
Also, maybe someone can tell me: would a blade that sped up for about a second, then slowed down for 3 seconds, when the truck was hot and idling, be an indication that the clutch was bad, or going bad?
My truck has about 192k on it and the fan clutch has never been changed. I'm now on my third water pump.
