Ive noticed something a little wierd in my ED. From when i start the engine the radiator fan is constantly on and doesnt seem to turn off. The engine temp guage seems to only move from cold to the line where normal begins.

I know the ED uses a clutch fan, but is it meant to be on all the time from startup?

It will move all the time and gets faster when the engine revs up. If it moves too easy as in you can push it around with no drag, then it would be a good idea to replace the clutch.

Forget replacing the clutch just get some EF/EL Thermo Fans or the Conversion Kit more power and you dont get the annoying noise the clutch fan gives out !
