So, does anyone have suggestions on the best methods to replace the fan clutch and clean between the AC evaporator and the radiator?

Fan clutch can be replaced while laying on to of the engine. I've done it twice. It's not fun but it's the only way to do it that I know of without removing your radiator.

Reading through this thread you basically have two things you can try. The easiest by far is replacing the fan clutch. The ACDelco unit is about $110. I wouldn't buy a cheap one from a parts store because they are generally a generic unit and there have been a lot of people complaining that the cheap ones don't come on at the right temperature. Your last choice is to replace the radiator.

Personally I think you might be a year or two by replacing just the fan clutch but in the long run you will have to take the radiator out and at a minimum have it cleaned but if it were me while it's out I would re-core it which means you don't have to worry about it again for a LONG time!

Any suggestions on how to remove the radiator from a 92 P30 based Land Yacht? Can it be dropped down through the bottom? I'm really wanting to get this done without dumping all my fresh Freon 12.

I'm not really familiar with the Landyacht's but it probably has the horizontal radiator which has to come out the front. The radiator is wider than the frame rails. Prior to 82 or so the radiators were tall and skinny and could slip through the frame rails and out the bottom.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Cant you pump down & recover your r 12? You just let it go?
