Well I bougta male plug(see ebay thing below). I'm gonna cut the wire with connector of my old clutcher 180,000 on it. I'm gonna make a separate plug in wiring insert with a wire to go to a grounding switch. That way the pigtail on the new fan clutch dont get cut and the main wiring harness dont get cut.

Rather than force my tired old eyes to read this whole post again, has anybody had any system issues after doing this mod. I converted to the BPD 7.3 fan clutch adapter and fan clutch but sheesh is it loud. I am replacing my 7.3 fan clutch in case it defective because it just seems to run too long and too often even with normal temps and no real load on the truck. I am concerned that the fact that the oil cooler added to the stack (oil cooler, CAC and radiator) is keeping the air temps at the front of the engine too warm to allow proper operation of the thermostat on the fan clutch. I hate to change this because my truck has never run cooler with more consistent EOT/ECT's. Any thoughts on this??? I suppose that I could start using my shooters ear protection and start looking like the fire truck drivers driving the old screaming Jimmy powered trucks...

I have had the same issue. With my fan clutch. When I heat it up it just never seems to shut off again especially pulling any kind of weight.

You'll find many satisfied customers, including me. It's been working great for 2 years. It does set a soft code, but big deal.

It appears there's been a couple failed attempts at this fan mod, but who knows what the problem was. The 7.3 clutch isn't interesting to me.

Failed as in it didn't work or failed as in it caused damage to the truck..ie fried something?

Not going to hurt the truck unless they majorly messed something up. My clutch is also loud but the A/C boost it gave me was well worth the extra noise.

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.

Doubt its the oil cooler, I have the HD option with the clutch and the fan noise is the same no matter if it on cold start driving around or after an hour when my coolant is 200ish (I have a 200F stat)

Weird to me that you guys complain of over operation of the fan with the 7.3 clutch. It seems the only time my fan engages is on a cold start after sitting. I never hear the fan come on, not even at 215* temps.
Maybe my Hayden clutch is defective?
