Since I last replied to this thread I put an electric Taurus fan in mine. Now my motor runs nice and cool. I think it cost me a total of $60 or so after all was said and done.

OOPS! So in your opinion should I fix the problem by replacing the clutch fan.... or install the Flex-a-lite?

I imagine you could go either way. Since you already got the Flex-a-lite, why not just run that anyhow?

Depends on you really. I sourced a fan from a junkyard, then got a thermostat, relay and wiring and had to do some trimming on the fan but it was a fun little project.

I would say just get a decent fan clutch and call it done.

Agreed there is something else going on here.

If it were airflow, it would only affect things in marginal situations, that is, situations where you would be almost at the boiling point.

Agreed. Most likely needs to have a reverse flush to clean the gunk out of the block + radiator. They have a kit for it at Autozone for like $10, I did it to mine and I highly recommend it.
