I rented a tool from Advance to help install. The tool was worn out and would not fit the application, it was useless. Fan clutch once installed did not work. Found out that five of the last nine sold there were returned. Purchased one at orielys and it worked fine. It was 10.00 more but worth it to not have to play parts swapper with "NEW" parts. I know it can happen but very disatisfied with this brand.

Easy to install. The nut that holds the fan blade is mated to this part. Don't forget a dab of threadlock.

          Comments about Imperial Fan Clutch - Severe Duty:

          The LARGE NUT built onto the clutch shaft that screws onto the water pump, is narrower in width than the OEM clutch, and makes it more difficult to get a wrench onto it while getting the holding wrench onto the four water pump studs. It is NOT a SMALLER wrench size, it is less NUT SURFACE.

                  A:

                  it will vary by vehicle. Typically it is opposite the rotation of the fan while the engine is running. Most are left hand threads.

                • A:

                  With fan clutches, there is no specific temperature where it goes from "off" to "on". The fluid inside it make a gradual change as the coolant warms up and engages the fan more as it's needed.
