Sort of - It is now called MacMaster Chev/Olds, 1470 Dunda St., (519)455-6200. I have found the parts guys there nice, but quite useless if the computer cannot tell them the answer with 30 seconds. No time for the little guy I guess.Originally posted by Daves68:
Hey Bow_Tied, Is Eastown Chevrolet still around,My 68 SS came from London Ontario..
Here's a good thread on fans on the camaro site...Originally posted by Bow_Tied:
Thanks guys, that was my guess.
It sure is cold up here Mike, I just took the v-plow off the velle for the summer!
Is there a reason besides cost that leads you to the non-thermal (because they will spin at high rpms?)?
How do they work? I guess the non-thermal is a centripal weight set-up?
Does anyone have a GM part# for a the non-thermal type?
Non-Thermal Fan Clutch
- Low cost alternative for some standard thermal clutches.
- Always engaged, less fuel savings than a thermal clutch.
- Spins at about 30-60% of the water pump speed.
- Shorter life expectancy.
- Cannot replace a heavy-duty clutch.
- Identified by the smooth, steel faceplate, (without a thermal spring assembly), on the front.
There is also a three-page tutorial. Page 1:Thermal Fan Clutch
- Varies the fan speed with temperature of the air behind the radiator.
- Engaged (high speed) operation provides maximum cooling.
- Disengaged (low speed) operation provides fuel savings and noise reduction.
- Greater life expectancy than a non-thermal clutch.
- Briefly engaged at cold start-up.
- Engages at about 170° radiator air temperature, (about 30° lower than coolant temperature).

Far as I'm concerned, non-thermal fan clutches are junk for people who refuse to spend the money for a real fan clutch.
