so you are implying that with 65mph wind blowing through the radiator that the fan is somehow connected to water and oil temps? not likely. OP you must remember that at the end of the day, you are cooling the radiator/coolant with 110 degree air and you are only cooling the oil with 211 degree coolant. The fan is usually only a factor at a stop or very low speeds.
not saying that the fan clutch is not weak. I am simply stating that at 65mph that the fan is not the issue.the fan clutch is only useful if the air speed created from the fan/engine rpm is greater then the air speed from mph. and the volume of air the radiator see's from high mph is always going to be greater than the volume the fan creates. So MPH must be very low and inefficient in order for the fan to have to work.the air from vehicle speed is consistantly hitting the entire mass of the radiator at consistant speed. the fan covers only partial radiator mass and is determined by rpm/heat ect.
