I have a Taco that's been in a wreck and the radiator was pushed back into the fan. There is a bodyman in Mexico that will do the work pretty cheap. I live 10 miles from the border. A vehicle can not cross the US/Mexico border in tow, it has to cross under its own power.
Here is my plan:
Tow the Taco close to the border. Get in start the engine, and drive it across. The body man's shop is about 1.5 miles south of the border.
Does anyone know at what engine temperature the fan will engage? I'm just trying to figure out how far I can drive before I need to shut her down. I want to avoid doing any more damage to the radiator or fan by the clutch engaging the fan and allowing the fan to turn.
Thanks for your help
