I have AC,(or had that is) so I have a cluch fan (this is on the '85 turbo) and I can spin it freely when the engine is off. If this fan hits the water ( like when X-ing a creek) what will hapen? Iv'e herd that it will be OK and stop spining, but I just was hoping that some one here had expearince with these in the water.

Not subaru, but I've put those fans in water. It's still gonna blow water all over your engine, it's still going to try to turn. It wont hurt it though.

the action of the clutch mechanism will dampen the impact of the water, acting like a shock absorber. so you wont be breaking anything.

it wont go through the radiator unless you bottom out hard on the front skirt(seen it happen)
