Fan clutch alternative part #?

I must not be using the right keywords for the search, so I can't find a proper answer to this question! Hopefully, you will know what to look for and provide either proper keywords, direct links or first hand knowledge!

What part # can be used for a '95 V8 (v-belts) D90 fan clutch? I am looking for "OE"-type clutch (i.e. normal duty, not heavy duty) and hopefully, not have to (re)drill any bolt holes on the fan. I also would like to keep the fan shroud.
Evidently, I am looking for alternative part number I can get locally (i.e. not the OEM ERC5708 part which seems to retail in the $120 +shipping range).

And of course, now that I wrote this, I found this guy on rock auto.....

Uro the cheapest out there and for that reason alone worth avoiding.

Get a standard RRC fan clutch and the 11 blade RRC fan it's a great upgrade and fits with very minor adjustment of the shroud ... in my case it didn't need any modification at all.

don't whatever you do buy anything rated as heavy duty ... the will just run the fan more of the time, create noise and increase your fuel consumption for no benefit!

Interesting line of reasoning for "heavy duty" clutches.
Had never considered that they actually LOWER mileage because they engage at a lower temperature.

Wonder how many diesel/ Tdi owners have considered this as a reason their engines run cold. ?

I ran a GM 4.3 V6 fan clutch on my '96 Disco. I made a small spacer to move the fan into the stock location within the shrould but could done without it.

So the thermostat will control the temp of the engine ... it's job is to basically keep the engine warm .... when the thermostat opens the coolant is cooled by flowing at volume through the radiator .... when that is insufficient the fan kicks in and more cooling is provided.

If the fan is engaged before the thermostat opens it's just consuming horsepower for no benefit.

a HD fan clutch wouldn't cause an engine to run cold .. only the thermostat controls that.

That GM unit V6 unit is the one to go for.
Available as regular and heavy duty, which I assume references vehicles equipped with towing from factory. Get the bolt kit as well and ease the holes in the fan to accommodate the different thread size

Do you happen to have a part number? I'm going to try to find one tomorrow and the part store clerks are typically not so good with their computers....

Loic-
For a GEMS truck try the Hayden 2626 (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000C3F31G...I2819KOLXSAVXF)

This is NOT the HD unit that is often swapped in, that sounds like a C-130. It is a 'standard duty' unit but in using my scangauge I noticed no difference in terms of keeping the engine cool. It is what has been in Coyote for years now.

Thanks guys!
Doug, that one shows up as heavy duty. Do you know what truck it would fit (so I can not look for a normal duty)?

It fits range rovers up to 95. The one I have is no louder than the oem fan clutch
Whats wrong with heavy duty ?
