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.
