I really do not have an opinion on the 7.3L fan clutch. I know quite a few people have used it and like it.

I needed a little extra cooling due to installing a heavy (aftermarket) front bumper replacement (and grill), so I installed the snow plow fan clutch. I am happy with it.

mark if you could explain to me that it is a snow plow fan clutch, excuse my ignorance, another question that I wanted to ask you, where do you recommend that I do the heads when it touches me and if there is something that I should know when I buy the ARP I am using an application to translate I hope be vastly correct thank you once again

Ford part #4C3Z-8A616-SA


You will lose about 1/2 of a mile-per-gallon in fuel economy with it.

For head studs, I used the ARP 4202.


I trust "Xtreme Diesel", but they aren't always the cheapest.

Also, I recommend the Fel Pro head gasket.



When buying the gaskets, be sure to get the right ones for your engine (18mm guide dowels or 20mm guide dowels)

To be honest, I have been out of the alternator market for a LONG time. I really do not know where a good place to buy one would be.

Do you have any large aftermarket electrical demands (stereo, winch, etc)?

If not, a 140A alternator would probably be ok, but a 190a alternator would be even better in my opinion.

Let me try to find some recommendations on another forum or two and get back with you.

Take a look at the video below. Jack (TooManyToys.) is pretty much an expert on the 6.0L electrical system - wiring and alternators. He is on almost all of the 6.0L forums.

You might just get an OEM 140A alternator and the smaller pulley. Alternator part # 6C3Z-10346-BARM.

If you want to get a 230A alternator, the one from Dieselsite is good (230A Leece Neville alternator):

As far as belts go, the stock belt is 126.7 inches, part # 3C3Z-8620-DB
With a smaller pulley, I use a 126.5 inch belt. Continental Elite Belt: Poly-V, Serpentine, 8-Rib, part # 4081265F
A lightly smaller belt would be 125.8 inch belt. Continental Elite Belt: Poly-V, Serpentine, 8-Rib, part # 4081258

I can't find a part number for the smaller (overdrive) pulley (58mm), but I will still do some looking.

Here is an overdrive pulley, but you may need to check on its actual diameter - since it isn't listed on the web site.


Here is another option for a pulley (and it is the 58mm diameter that is needed):

Oh, and you would need to install larger electrical cables if you went with the 230A alternator.
