The OM601 was only in the US for '84 and '85 in the 190D. It had both an 
electromagnetic fan clutch on the engine powered fan and an added electric fan 
in front of the condenser which only comes on when the AC is on. See Dr. Fatty

Yeah. That's why I was thinking of the thermo as the first part 
to change. If that doesn't work then the next easiest is the fan 
clutch, then the radiator.

As far as the electro magnetic fan fan clutch. What year and 
model car is that? I looked at the 190D with 601 and it showed 
what looked to be a plain electric fan, or are the electric 
clutches sold with the fan on them? Didn't look like it and only 
cost about $80.

I don't think high temps at speed is a bad fan clutch, once 
you're up to speed the ram air through the radiator means the fan 
isn't doing a whole lot.
High temps at low speeds is possibly the fan clutch...
