Haha, you mean when it turns into a fan clutch, water pump, hoses, thermostat, and thermostat housing? Might as well...

How did the lower hose blow off, twice? Is there a high flow extreme death defying water pump out there no ones brought to my attention?

Yeah, that'll happen. I'm just jealous because you have an e-fan and I don't. Too lazy to swap mine out, clutch fans workin like a champ, just hate the fan sounding like a jet liner...
