    My 2004 GMC sierra 2500 HD would run hot with the 7.6 fisher plow. turns out that i had to up grade the fan clutch because it didn't kick on enough. 2500 HD!!! seems they would be ready to plow. NOT REALLY!! With the new clutch the fan kicks on twice as much and the truck runs around 210 all day long it is an easy fix and makes a world of difference. I also had to do this to my old 04 GMC sierra to seems that the cooling system is to small. some trucks dont come with the up graded fan if they are not up fitted from the dealer with the plow prep. the part # for the clutch for my truck is ACD# 15-4694 GM#15710101 if your truck has an electric fan then you got me swinging

    I'd sell the GM part over the counter for $125 to give you an idea of price.

    Verify which fan clutch you have it is not unheard of that chevy put the wrong one on. If so they might pay for it.
