Another winter project.

68 w/ a L6, 250 non a/c
It seems to run warm when the weather gets hot.
Did this come with a fan clutch. Does not have now.
If no, would adding one cool the engine?  Or can I add a multi-blade fan?

If it just runs warm in hot weather I would have the radiator rotted out and see if that would help. With nothing wrong to cause it the radiator most likely is the cause.

x2 on the radiator.
68s could run a little warm when it was hot.
But how warm is it getting? Shouldn't be a fan issue on a 68 non a/c L6...

Yup, focus on the radiator first.
The simple 4-blade fan works fine, it's not the problem.
