Do you mean the clicking sound? Thats the igntion relay getting electricity.another line said:My fan has an on/off switch in the dash that comes on as soon as the ignition key is turned to On. Is this a common thing for an 85 fj60? Is there a specific reason for this or just how the previous owner rigged it?
gillti said:If mine is not working 100% correctly i am worried. Worried simply because I have overheating issues. Pimp, when you say Lock-up does that mean it will stop the hotter it gets?
another line said:My fan actually has a manual switch to turn it on and off, but when it is in the on position it comes on when the the key is turned on. Is this common or something that has been customized?

For a long time after buying my cruiser, I would occasionally hear a faint whirring noise. I'd ask my wife if she heard it and she would say 'hear what?'. But I could hear something 'whirr up' and later 'whirr down'. Originally I thought that the noise was associated with the A/C, but noticed that it came on without the A/C being turned on. Then one day I realised that it must have been the fan clutch!!
My cruiser has the 12H-T diesel, and there is soundproofing on the firewall and under the bonnet, so that may be why it not that noisy.
gillti said:now that a carb cooling fan has been mentioned, let me ask you this pimp: mine does not work, I have one off my old 40 that looks about the same, are they? I know that one works because I have hooked a battery up to it, don't know about the one currently installed. However, that doesn't help with overheating does it? just cooling once stopped, or am i crazy?
