Uh, ok.... anyway made it home 7 hours... the fan clutch was not the problem... my radiator is original, and can keep up with “normal” stuff that I do (including off roaring locally) but not with more extreme needs... (pulls on long grades or climbs) so it’s most likely partially clogged. (Like 100% most likely).
I did not do anything to the fan clutch for the drive home which was mostly downhill out of Windrock tn. I ran at in norm temps all the way home babying it on the grades.
so time for a new cooling system.. Robert d, electric fans are in my future, but we also dealt with a consequence of them this weekend with another truck and a failed alt diode which we rewired it to switched 12v power on a switch to get it home.

‘93 Defender. Headlight suddenly stopped working last week. Low & high beams on both sides. Rear running lights and dash lights still work, so don’t think switch. Replaced all in cab fuses, no luck. Is there another engine compartment fuse to look into?
Title says it. I have a oil pressure sender connected to a Madman gauge and I’m getting pressure readings up into the 80’s-90’s on acceleration. After about 10 minutes the pressure readings fall back into normal SOP. I don’t know this motor well enough to know where to start. Is this something I...
While installing a Slick Shift I noticed that the grooves in the sides of the shifter housing are completely eaten away and rather than nice little notches they're big, oblong holes, so I decided to install a new one.
I have a new roll pin and removed the spring (thanks Mr. Dremel) from...
