When I search for 88961767, it always comes up as an AC Delco part, so I think it is a GM part number. I also believe 8896167 has been replaced by part number 154949.

I need some input on my fan clutch. How do you know if a fan clutch is bad?
On my previous MH it would engage when I slowed down and disengage when I speed up, like clockwork. On this 345 the engine seems to roar at all times, it never changes. I never heard the clutch engage or disengage. With a cold engine it will not spin freely, it just moves an inch or so if i try to spin it by hand.

Peter, sure sounds to me like your fan clutch is no good. Your description of your old motorhome pretty much matches how our 310 operates.

I think you probably should check into getting one of the GM brand clutches and install it.
