Well why don't jet engines have efans Bob? Get where I am going here? You can't compare apples to oranges, I have explained that to you numerous times and you don't comprehend; you must be retarted.

If it doesn't exist then it doesn't exist. I don't care to look right now because I'm at work. Either way, there is no problem with efans if you do it properly.

This is not a problem with electronics. The main reason the problem occurs is because the case rusts then it makes it's way to the electronics. Not the electronics failing on their own.
Isn't this a "chicken or egg" scenario? Bottom line, the e-fan stops, and the engine overheats!!! A mechanical fan/clutch would not have this sensitivity!!

Actually when a mechanical fan gets stuck on then it will cool too much and cause the engine to overheat.

It causes improper cooling just like a bad thermostat.

Well I can't find anything to back my statement. But I did see it somewhere. So no I have nothing to back up what I said about it being harmful to water pumps.

So sit there and get a hard on and try not to make a mess on your keyboard.

"Seized fan clutch causes water pump failure, and causes engine to overheat".......Just curious where you got this type of information?


Wherever you got it, what else have you learned?

You did it for me with your post:

Electric fans are not recommended for primary diesel engine cooling when the combined gross vehicle weight (CGVW) exceeds 18,000 pounds (truck, trailer and load)

18,000# CGVW is pushing the upper limits of any new diesel truck on the market.

Please Bob, SHOW me something that proves me wrong, don't just say that I am wrong. The more you post, the dumber you look.

2008 F250 SRW 4x4 or 4x2 is 12,500# trailer weight for "bumper style" (meaning hitch obviously) towing

And 15k for 5th wheel.

I couldn't find the CGVW

it looks like you guys are going off on a different subject!! lol

My experience: the fan shroud has to do a lot on how the fan cools. If the shroud and the fan don't match, then it won't "pull" enough air. It doesn't matter if it's an efan or mechanical.

I did a swap on my Astro for a V8 and the biggest problem was to get the fan shroud to match the new configuration and position of the mechanical fan. Finnaly got the Taurus efan / SPAL controller combination (about $150) and has been smooth sailing ever since. Not the cheapest rout, but the correct one. No overheating in Houston TX and towing 2500 lbs.

So I think your fan shroud is incorrect plus the cfm of the fan used might not be enough. You could try "glassing" the gap in between the fan and the shroud too. That way it will "suck" as much air as it can.
