You can take the hood off and open the air vents and let your clutchless fan cool you too ! Or get yourself a trucker cabin fan.

Important !

You must tighten the replacement Clutchless fan using a holding tool. It must be made very tight. Cleaning the waterpump/Idler hub and using locktite is also recomended. 1/4" wrench fits the hub to tighten it. A hook tool against the hub bolts or large pliers on the pulley itself, with an old belt to protect grooves, can work if more correct tools are not available.

Without the clutch, when the engine shuts down, the Clutchless Fan can try to remove itself, if not tightened correctly. Make your new Clutchless Fan very tight during installation !

Damage can occur to your radiator and other items in your engine bay if the installation is not correct. To avoid damage to engine components tighten the Clutchless Fan very tight using a holding tool on the hub for a positive installation. You can not rely on the serpentine belt to hold the hub enough for correct fitment.

Thanks

Lefty Tighty on this nut !

I am planning to put AC in mine. Will make it happen by hook or by crook. A RHD system shouldn't be too hard to scrounge up.

How about a bucket of dry ice under the trucker fan? Do it at dusk so it appears to work. Cheap date. Drive to an old make out point. And wifey may want to reward her genius for keeping her cool.

I've been following this thread because I just got a Lincoln fan - same as the Taurus - and I was going to install it in my D90 - 300TDI.
I'm not sure what the advantage of this setup is over stock or the electric Taurus unit.
Would someone please enlighten me.

Another comment for DB....
A/C was the biggest waste of money and time I ever spent on my D-90. Passenger freezes, I roast.

I bought the RN system - about 2 years ago.
My wife really wanted a/c, but we usually only have a bikini top on the D-90 in the Summer, so it was quite a waste of money.
Even with the full Badger top on, there isn't much difference, as the top radiates so much heat.
I can also feel the effect on the power with the a/c going.
In my gutted RR, I use a truckers fan, and it helps for about $30.
