    *Thinks for a second*

    No it's got resistance, which is why getting the fan off was easier than going on. I get what your saying but i guess i havent studied it that close. I know its always spinning when the engine on lol

    Most belts in more modern cars (before serpentine belts) will have 3 points of contact. It merits a better belt tension than just 2 points

    And yeah the AC one is about 1'' smaller.

    lol fair enough haha

    Yes, it always is spinning when the engine is running but it should not be solid as you described until the temps in the shaft get very hot (as monte described). In theory, when its cold and spinning, you could stop it (don't try) because it is not locked up solid (yes, even though it is spinning).

    Yea i was being dense.

    Thanks for all the help though. Hopefully i can get it to occur when i leave work.

    It is hard to replicate in the mornings with the truck in a warm garage all night. Usually get a block away from home, when the cold starts effecting it and the noise starts as I'm driving to work.

    hmm outside temps are making it not the engine temp then.

    That is odd...

    So, then it shouldnt have been more rigid when i removed it than installed it, if the temps were both cool? I am just trying to figure that out now. The 4 times if removed that part its always been that way. way easier to get off but took a level arm to hold the fan in place to tighten the nuts.
    Interesting. Ill inspect that and see if that is the culprit. Then i can do electric fans!

    Yes and no. It is occurring when the engine and ambient temps are cold. Once the engine is up to temp it goes away.

    And just because i dont know how it works, what about the Crank Pressure valve?

    hmm.

    Not likely that. If that's not working it'll just let oil pool up on the valve cover.

    Electric fans are loud as fuck. They also tend to present problems, every guy I've know that put them on hated them. The thermostat's seem to be finicky. Its also really hard to find a good shroud for the e fans for our trucks as its not a super popular thing to do. The mechanical one is much more reliable and bullet proof. After you watch that video you'll see why its works well and won't ever really let you down. The worst that can happen is the fluid goes bad or the valve locks up and either your fan is just stuck on all the time(not gonna hurt anything) or just partially on(not good but will get you home). You CAN swap out the fluid yourself, bit a PITA but it is doable and once done will last a long ass time again.

    Good to know.

    Sounds like it's one of those parts that is better to replace than service.

    yeah its stupid cheap to replace. Granted, doesn't take that long to replace the fluid, just kind of messy.

    There was an awd AMC eagle here for sale a little while ago for 2k I think. Thought about picking it up just to throw bigger tires on and go play in the desert. Think it would be a fun cruiser too.
