Doesn't Flex-i-lite have a fan that works with a fan clutch?

Phillip I snagged this off the www once.

"if you have a '95 Classic or Defender with the serpentine belt, you are lucky. Go to Autozone and ask for the fan clutch for a 1998 Chevy Blazer, engine 4.3l V6 with a/c. Part number is : Regular duty 922744 : $ 59.99 Extreme duty 922786 (old #215158) : $66.99 -- this is the one recommended for LR use."

So my guess is if you got the fan that went with one of these fan clutches it would work (Assuming the size is close)

yeah mine is serpentine. I was just saying that if compatible clutches are available, those clutches must have fans right? Try find the fans that go with those clutches - they are the same size as the D90 clutches

I dont know that it would move anymore air than whats stock already.
I wish there was a v belt alternative to that Chevy fan clutch. I run below 180 when I am on the highway, but when I am in town and the woods I can easily get to 200. I have had the radiator serviced and flushed the system. I dont think removing the AC condenser will help. I am not sure what people are running in the woods but I know upwards of 200 is a consideration for these shitty ass engines.

Pendy taught me a trick which lowered my temps by a few degrees - get some pipe insulation and use it to fill the gaps on the sides and bottom of the radiator. It forces the air to go through the radiator and not around it. Make sure your shroud fits well too.

Reviving this one...I tried to the Chevy fan clutch from Autozone (with the part numbers above) but the bolt holes do not even come close to working with my fan. The bolt circle on the fan clutch appears to be a solid 1-2" too small. Anyone else run into this?

guess I'm back to ordering one from the usual suspects and waiting...

That is for a serpentine configuration. Try a rrc fan and clutch, there is a thread on this.
