    Anyone rebuild theirs? Had my AC refilled the other day after getting my truck all back together from rebuilding the frame, and the guy said the fan clutch was bad because the pressure on the low side was too high, and he was able to easily stop the fan with his fingers.

    Haven't had a chance to check it yet but I'm wondering if the thermostat piece is rusted and not allowing it to engage, or maybe the fluid has leaked out...I'm assuming these are fluid filled.

    If it's not worth trying to salvage can someone verify this is the proper replacement OEM part?

    Thanks!

    $90-$100 is only 5% of $2000, so spend it and get your cooling system back up to snuff.
