Several members on here recommend loctite to keep the fan from unscrewing itself when the engine stops. Its not pretty when the fan loosens up and propels itself into the radiator.

Having used loctite on my fan clutch, I had no problem removing it a second time when the cheap pump I used failed 2 years later. I can't remember which color I used (red or blue) but it was under the advice from this forum.
1988 F250, 7.3L IDI, regular cab, long bed, 5spd ZF
Mods: ATS turbo, 3.5 inch exhaust, superduty springs front and rear, 4 gauge A-pillar pod: boost, pyro, coolant and 4th spot is switches; was 2wd, now 4wd with Dana 60 front axle
next projects: fix/complete the 3.5 inch exhaust (tailpipe exits waaaaaay to low, and needs to be extended out from under the bed) swap to a rust free cab
