system operation

The drag on the alternator is proportional to the amount of power it produces. More load(amps), more drag, more HP to drive it.

not adding up

Bypassing the heater wouldn't make any difference in loss of fluid unless it is leaking through the heater.

If you are losing that much then there is either evidence of it, or it is going through...

depends on loading

It isn't quite as simple as the lower the rpms the higher the efficiency. It depends on how much the engine is loaded. Same with wear. Lug an engine for an extended period of time and you will find...

red line

Just watch the redline and stay about 750 rpm below the redline. That is what the redline is for, to stay below but ok to run below that.

There is far less wear on the bearings running at 4,000...

The gearing is a combination of the transmission, transfer case, rear end, and tire size. It is very simple to change the gearing when needed, even when driving. It is called, shifting gears.

The issue with rerouting the water directly back into the engine is that there is no place for expansion. That will blow the hoses as the pressure builds up.

You absolutely do not want to run...

dual fans?

I presume one is in front and one is in the rear? I wonder if that is really effective at increasing the air through the radiator.

You might try blocking off the area below the radiator and...

new alternator

Don't see any reason you would need a new alternator. Unless the one you have is only rated for 25A or so. Even then it would be enough to run the stock load on the vehicle.

A typical electric fan will pull about 8-10A on low speed and 20A on high speed. It isn't the unrealistic amperage that some say. Nor is it necessary to run 70A relays and #6 wire. On the low speed a...

There are a lot of items that work. A large screwdriver works great if you can get to it. But for about $5-$6 you can't beat an actual automotive stethoscope.
