A 90 model with an E-6?? and with an air operated fan, not a viscous fan clutch??  I'm about to learn something here. Mabey Glenn or F, will answer this one for you.

Horton used to market an air fan clutch kit but not any longer shown here:

They don't seem to offer any upgrades either.

Replace the viscous fan clutch assembly as they usually default to full time operation when no longer working correctly meaning sensing temperature correctly. Better to over run the fan than not run it and cook the engine.

Engine would have to be a transplant into the chassis but I've seen similar so not doubting.

Normally the sender to switch on engine fan is via a temp sender unit in radiator or pipes from engine to radiator

some makers wire up the fan clutch to also engage when Air conditioner is on

suggest: check AC wiring

Squishy, thanks for your help , all mechanic engine , factory no a/c and fan clutch, so not air actuated .. so I'm guessing I cannot wire a switch to do it manually

Does your fan look like the one in the picture I’m pretty sure it does  you can not stop that fan from spinning it works on a temp sensitive clutch it just spins at different speeds as it warms up and cools down

If it's original to the chassis I'm wondering if a glider kit? Can't remember if the RD series was offered as a glider that late or not however.

There are written procedures for testing the operation of a thermostatic viscous fan clutch and only requires a piece of cardboard and non contact thermometer. Basically with the engine under 100 degrees(F) pull the fan through a few rotations by hand till it eases in effort to turn. Then start the engine and with the radiator blocked allow to warm to about 200-210 degrees(F), shut the engine down and physically pull the fan blade around, (by hand). The effort needed when hot should be significantly greater than when cold. If near rigid, the fan clutch is good. If still relatively easy to turn the fan by hand, replace the marginal fan clutch.

Are you sure the radiator isn't dirty on the outside ?  As in plugged up with dust and such between the cooling fins, not letting air flow through it as it should.  Maybe that fan is working exactly like it should ?
