I've noticed that the needle goes a little higher than it did before, even though it's usually well below freezing here.
Before too long I plan on either swapping in a dual core rad I have, or adding another electric fan to it.
However, if you're not having overheating problems, I'd say stick with what you have.

But he's in Cheyenne. Theres no traffic in Cheyenne. Just rocks, barbed wire, and last years snow that hasnt melted and is still blowing around. :-p
The thing is will she remember to keep an eye on the temp gauge if caught in traffic..
Heh.. I need to get back out there again.
Personally, although its the Floridian in me talking, I'd still set it up with either a replacement clutch, or an electric fan right away. You never know what could happen.. like you run into Wendys for a spicy chicken thinking you'll be out fast enough, but the people inside are slower than expected.. or any number of other things. Its just an extra safety net to be sure you wont blow up. However, short term, you can run without... since its so bleedin cold up there. Just make sure you've got room to "run out" and cool that puppy down if you're stopped for any period of time.

The ONLY time I REQUIRED a motor driven fan was on my old 472ci engine. Electric fans just couldnt keep it cool; even with a huge 3 row radiator and 2 huge electric fans.
