Have you tried putting the original fan and shroud stock water pump and the correct clevo thermostat.
To answer your question John
I did it to remove load from the V-belt. Otherwise the stock 7 blade fan loads up the belt and throws it. Costing me thousands of $ and risking an engine overheat due to no fan belt. It's common knowledge clevo's like to throw belts at reasonable rpm. Makes me wonder why I move away from Holdan/Chev they never had this issue. I've owned them too.
6300rpm and kiss the belts goodbye and the $ in your wallet
