If the fan free wheels when you spin it by hand, you need a clutch.

There should be stiff resistance running at 220.

DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!!! IT"S STRICTLY A KNUCKLE BUSTER TRICK!!!!!!!!

On my 454 Burb I put a larger auxiliary electric fan in front of the radiator.

It came stock with an aux fan that came on with temp or when the AC was turned on. The aftermarket was much more efficient.

I wouldn't completely trust an all electric system.

IMHO..I would repair the fan clutch (if needed) and consider a high output aux fan to help when needed. The 454's benefit from all the cool air they can get.

POI...inspect water pump at the same time. Complete cooling system BACK-FLUSH wouldn't be out of order either.
