    Does anybody have any info. on what a new clutch fan would do for my 2500HD? Does it cool the radiator or the tranny or both? Is the stock one no good?

    It just cools your radiator the factory ones should be good ones.

    A lot of people are having trouble with the stock fan clutch. It cools the radiator AND the tranny cooler as well.

    I have a 2001 2500HD 6.0L gasser with 29,000 miles. Have plowed with it for two season using a 8' Pro. I have NEVER had any overheating problems. I always watch all the gages and never noticed it anywhere near the upper heating ranges. I also run a 8' V box on this truck. Loaded the V box level with the plow blade on and up I scaled at 11,500. This truck has been VERY dependable and has made me money.
