    I have a 90's chev with a western that is overheating this is a popular topic. I bought a severe duty thermal fan clutch and a 6 blade standerd duty fan blade as the fan that was on the truck was a 5 blade I think the previous put the wrong fan on. Any way the new fan stated in the instructions this fan is for a standerd clutch. I torqed the all the bolts to factory specs. WOW what a differance that thing really throws some air!! Has anybody done this before put a stock blade on a fancy clutch?? What is the worst that can happen?? I don't want my fan to fly off at 60 mph boy that would be an exciting night of plowing haha

    hopefully this cures my over heating problem

    Did the same thing as you with the 88 GMC I use to own. Like you said, WOW, big difference and never over heated again after.

    You should notice a gain in how much snow you can plow too. With it pulling that extra air, in turn should help push more snow
