great tip CN90!
i just replaced my fan clutch and this was such an invaluable tip.
for those on the electric fan camp, this fan clutch keeps air over all plastic parts which prolongs the pliability of the hoses.

btw, how viscous is the clutch fluid suppose to be?
neither my old one nor the new one (non-OE) are spinning as freely as these guy's videos below.
these guys are able to stop the fan with a finger.

i am able to spin the fan when the engine is off but there is resistance. and when idling, there is no way i can try what these guys have shown.
although i did notice in both videos, they have V8's and mine is an I6.
