Cooling Fan Stuck

Okay my cooling fan is stuck and Im pretty sure its a bad clutch. Before I start ripping stuff out is there anything else you guys recommend checking? I have already replaced thermostat and made sure there are no blocks in any lines. Didn't know electrical wise if there are any relays or fuses I need to look at. Thanks for any input.

Just a few upgrades here and there.

I guess my more direct question is what controls the fan? It is control by the ECT sensor or is it controlled by the temperature of the oil inside the clutch itself? I have an autozone ECT sensor and I have read that off brands can cause problems. I went ahead and ordered a motorcraft sensor so I can hopefully eliminate that. It spins freely by hand, it just roars when on the highway and streets. It occasionally will cut off. It has been cool here in the mornings so I figured it wont be on. Im running empty, no trailer of anything.
