Fan Clutch Stuck On??

Has anyone had the fan clutch stuck all ways on? My truck ROARS at start up and while driving over 35 or 40 mph. Also the belts squeak anytime I go above 3200-3400 rpm. The belts are new and tight as I feel comfortable. Is there a good after market fan clutch?

Try to spin it by hand. You should be able to with some resistance but it shouldn't freewheel.

If it was fully locked it would not spin or take quite a bit of effort to spin by hand. Did it just start making noise or has it done it before.

It is hard to turn takes 2 hands.It has been doing it for awhile. The truck is new to me and I thought it was just how it sounds but after hearing other trucks and searching on here it seems like it is louder than others all the time.

Yeah if it is taking two hands then it's frozen. I don't know of any aftermarket fan clutches. I would just go to the parts store and grab one but try not to get Duralast. I had to change it on my Ranger and the new Duralast one was really tight and would kick on at the slightest temp increase and stay on most of the time causing my to lose quite a bit of power.

Over the weekend I installed the Flex A Lite dual electric fan (http://www.summitracing.com/parts/FLX-675/) from Summit Racing with adjustable thermostat along with a new radiator. My original radiator finally sprung a leak last week and noticed the fan starting to have a high pitch noise upon accelerating. Engine is noticeably responsive on acceleration and overtaking on the freeway. I guess the mechanical fan worked against the wind at higher speeds. I'm on day 3 with the install and am watching my mpg from a full tank on Sunday. I'll take pics this afternoon.

What do you have your thermostat set to come on at? And would you gain any power or mpg's if you took the pully that ran the stock off so the belts had less pull on them and could spin faster with less distance to travel since there would be one less pulley?
