    Posted: 16-October-2016 at 12:24PM
Have a 78 LTD II with 400.  This week replaced water pump, thermostat, added a new radiator and Royal Purple cooling additive.  

While on highway with ac temp gauge maintains between R and M on normal.  During stop and go traffic with ac temp gauge moves to a on normal.

Would a fan clutch from a Lincoln 400 fit?  Think it would help any?

Outside temp today was 90 with 85% humidity. 

Any suggestions appreciated

Just a regular 5 blade fan, no thermal clutch

I just did the conversion earlier this year using an aftermarket fan. 
See here for details:
