Cooling fan clutch

When my 2003 F550 heats up my fan slows down, overheating the engine. Is there any fix short of replacing it? At least till I can get one from 5000 miles away?

Or are their other vehicles that use the same?

Of course I want to get it fixed, but i need to make deliveries while parts travel. Also, from responses I've gotten, I'm not sure if it is the clutch or a temperature sensor. Someone said it is a 3 speed fan and the sensor might be bad.
