I'd really like those oil Temps lower.
He said he did this mod... and those temps are hight for just towing a boat.

I am curious about something. As I mentioned I just installed the fan, water pump and switched to elc yesterday. From the moment I ran my truck after the install I heard the fan moving air..... Not fully engaged but definitely engaged. My initial test drive, I definitely heard the fan at every take off after my stop. I took it for a hard run on the freeway and temps never got above 198* and ambient temps were 90ish.

Today I drove the truck a few times and that particular fan "noise" I heard yesterday is gone. I drove the truck on the freeway and ect reached 206 and dropped with engagement of the fan.... But still not as noticeable as the initial noise I heard yesterday.

Any ideas?

Am I a victim of the infamous Hayden defective fan crowd?

Thanks
Joe

Look at it this way. The thermostat is right on the front of the clutch so it's relies on the air hitting the thermostat now and not coolant and oil temps. It's going to engage and disengage way differently than before. Drive it for a few days and get use to how it reacts. Everyday is a new adventure.

Totally understood. It is obviously working because I can hear it engage as the temps climbed to 206 in the freeway this morning. Definitely going to have to get used to the operation for sure

Thanks

Anyone get a P0480 and P0528 after the swap? I did it about a month ago and now I'm throwing these codes. Not sure what to make of it. I'm not running hot and still hear the fan on start up. It never gets hot enough to kick back on since I'm not towing. Solenoid?

Those codes are for the computer controlled fan clutch you replaced with a mechanical clutch. Yes those codes are normal

The EGR does to your engine what smoking does to your lungs.

Remember you can always improve on a design until the EPA gets involved.
