Is Your fan wired up through a relay?

Ditto. Something isn't wired correctly.

I believe if you are using the MSD system and still have the three wire alt with external voltage regulator, VERY little residual voltage is required to cause "run on". You might search the archives as I did with this problem, and install a diode from Radio Shack, or even where I got mine, Advance Auto, and install it at the wire running back to the gen light on your dash...

Could also be that your idle is set too high. drop it down and see what occurs.
