Check your fan clutch.

I wasn't overheating at all but the ac is weak and I charged it and it's still kinda weak. I drained and flushed the rad last year. Time to check the fan clutch.

I did the hold test and it failed. So i picked up some 10,000 cst at the hobby store on the way home. pulled the fan clutch and mangled one nut getting it off. Pulled on off the 70 for reassembly. opened up the fan clutch and almost nothing came out great. I figured i'd fill it up anyway and see if it leaks. If it does i'll just buy a blue hub fan clutch. This one was an eaton 7/96.

I'll see how it works in the morning.

See you on the trail
