A water pump and a mechanical fan need a fair amount of power to be 
driven. They are not perpetu|m mobilae, so that power needs to come from 
somewhere: ultimately the engine, and it does not make any difference if 
that is through the alternator/dynamo and battery. So the power needed 
for the alternator that will feed the battery and powers the water pump 
will not be available to drive the wheels. Simple mathematics.
