Correct, the viscous clutch works based on temp of the clutch unit itself. When it gets hot, it activates, when it cools down it free wheels. So no hydraulic pump/fluid/valve involved. This is the same approach used on a LOT of 1980's/1990's cars (before electronic fans).Thanks. My question was how does the viscous clutch differ from the hydraulic one that comes stock in a M998? Does it no longer need the power steering pump and Cadillac valve? Does it engage progressively?
