It doesnít parasitically rob power when itís not needed. I have heard that there are longer spacers you can buy, but if I had to choose a regular fan over a clutch style, Iíd honestly spend the money and go electric fans. I will probably go that route when I add AC.
I have an 7 blade OEM clutch fan on the motor now and it's what I prefer. The core is on my bench fitting the heater but by taking rough measurements I don't think blades will totally be within the shroud. I went with the long pump to pick up 1 3/8" since I'm using the rear mount position. I'm considering electric fans as an alternative. How far in does your fan set in the shroud? The shroud I have is 5 3/4" deep. Thanks again!
