2005 f250 engine overheating

Hi,, i'm having an overheating problem with my 2005 f250 superduty. Had my radiator checked, new thermostat, new water pump and new belt. As for the fan clutch a mechanic “ checked this while of the engine, by turning the bolt on the clutch” and told me the fan clutch was ok.
Now i placed the fan back on and realized the fan is really stiff to turn by hand and after turning a bit, it starts spinning more and more freely until its just completely freespinning. Is this normal or should i replace the fan clutch?
Thanks for all advice.

I don't know Fords that well but that doesn't sound right. The clutch should be nearly free until it heats up and locks in.
