I have a junkyard fan clutch. I feel a slight resistance when I turn it. I gently heated the metal spring on the front. But I feel no difference when I turn it. Is this a valid test? Is this clutch any good?

Alittle resistance on the blade sounds about right. I just installed my NOS 7 blade fan and new Delco clutch on my 396. Works perfectly. I also can feel alittle resistance while turning a blade. It spins about 1/2 of the eng rpms but hasn't locked up yet due to this CT cold weather. This summer will be the real test. Sounds like yours is working fine.

See my first post. I have heated the spring and there is no difference in the way it fells -- off the car, not at speed.
