Fan clutch part #

Chevy 4.6l v6 w AC works on Discos if you make the holes a tad bigger on fan. You can also get standard duty if you don't want them running full time.

Kragen etc.: Hayden 2786 (heavy-duty),
Ready-Aire 4858R (heavy-duty), Imperial 215158 (severe-duty)

NAPA: TEM 271312 (severe-duty)

AutoZone:  includes hardware
Torqflo 922744 (heavy-duty), 922786 (severe-duty)

All - reverse rotation (serpentine belt!).

I went with Torqflo 922786 severe duty fan clutch

Here are some pics for comparison





The one thing you will notice is that it puts the fan closer to the rad. It isnt an issue and may actually help with cooling.

Installation was very easy but here is a link if you like visuals. I used two vice grips since my cresent wrench wasnt big enough (you'll need a big one). Installation is the exact opposite. The one thing you will need to do is drill the holes out on the fan. I just kept using bits that were bigger until all 4 fit and I dont have a bit size for you. If you have a reamer even better!

Got the new one on and it is LOUD. Seriously think my disco is sea plane now instead of just a boat.

It has corrected my overheating issue and my gauge hasn't even made it to the middle yet. The extra noise is worth knowing I wont be overheating.

I was having similar problems as Jake last year. Overheating when the AC was on, etc. I picked up the Imperial 215158 (severe-duty) clutch fan and it does sound like a plane but the truck runs nice and cool Cool

After running this fan clutch for a couple days here's my update.

It's LOUD. Like might annoy you if your truck is a daily driver.

I would recommend standard or heavy duty at max. Severe duty is well... severe. Maybe with time it will quiet down. Billy is yours still as loud as the day you put it in? If it doesn't oh well at least my truck will never overheat on a trail or on the way back from the pine barrens!

Meanwhile my needle hasn't reached the middle of the gauge yet. Drove it quiet a bit in some stop and go traffic today.

Very satisfied and I would recommend you all test your fan clutches after you go for a long drive and see if they spin fairly free. Don't wait until it's too late!
