The fan clutch has never been replaced.I have never heard any roar or anything noticeable.there isnt a load of bugs. the lower part of the fan shroud I had to cut off because of my body lift.
but it has never heated up like this before. I am going to replace the radiator cap. and the recovery tank is in good condition and after this happened i put it to half full because it has always been dry. so that probably means it is the fan clutch right??

thanks,
Joel Thomas

I've got an '84 that I would love to put a cowl hood on. I'm jealous of
the later models that have Cervini as a source for this part. Has anyone
ever tried (I realize the lines of the hood won't match up with the
front quarters) fitting a '93 or later hood to an 80-86 truck? **All I'm
concerned with at this moment is...Does the latch line up and close
properly?** What I'm planning on trying is getting a Cervini hood and
having a body man that's great at fiberglass (probably a Corvette guy
unfortunately) match the lines of where the hood meets the front
quarters. I can't be the only guy who's thought about this!

I'm sorry to say you're probably out of luck ... unless the light is flashing
... on the plus side, the check engine light on these OBDII cars is hooked mostly
into the emissions system and will only pull a few degrees of timing. If the
car goes into "limp" mode (IE major loss of power and performance), then you
should not drive it, otherwise its probably an inefficient catalytic converter
or a failing rear O2 sensor ... the Mustang guys drive around with that light
on for months with no ill effects (other than a loss of timing), so unless the
trucks manners have changed a lot, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Steve,
I know that you lurk on the Lightning list. As you have heard from them, the
Cervini hoods don't fit that well to begin with, so minor modification will
have to be done anyway. On the flip side of that, you could purchase a
replacement steel hood and mold a cowl or say a teardrop (ALA 60's stangs) on
there and be different. But in any case, modification will have to take place
for it to be workable.

I wish that was true, but my fuel mileage has dropped to 10 GPM down from
18. Also the engine has no power so I know there is something wrong...
