You can test this out by driving for a few days with the fan restrained by a thin rope tied to one blade and the intake manifold.

Eventually, you'll need to change the resistor on your auxiliary fan as well, especially considering that you're using it for primary cooling. There is a newer, more modern solid-state resistor that is better than oem. Purchase that instead of the old spring-type version.
well winter time is upon us here in Canada. we have two seasons up North, Winter and July/August. I'm probably going to remove the fan and leave it off when I remove the Thermostat housing to Nickle plate it. Heh heh heh. Come end of June I'll install a nice electric fan.
Thanks for the tip!!
