That is wild LOL, I have thrown MANY belts before but never had that.Ya think this might cause some vibration??
Fired the car up, engine sounds good and normal then I saw the fan pully wobbling so shut it down. Didn't know if maybe the pulley had cracked or what and didn't want it to come apart. Took the fan and clutch off and then the pully, The damn hub spun on the water pump shaft.. wtf???
Oh yep, I have seen that before. Had a friend's crack the snout. Never thought anything of something like that until Is aw it.OK, After talking with Concept One, and TuffStuff, (Edelbrock is closed until Monday with the move) the consensus is the 1" spacer puts way too much end load on the water pump when using a fan clutch. Both said they've seen this happen but only when using a spacer and a fan clutch.
I ordered an Edelbrock 8854 which is the same except not polished. Paid the $33 for overnight delivery so i'd have it back on the road by the weekend.
Going to try it without the spacer and see if it effects the cooling. I'll keep y'all updated.
Ouch what's that from?
I was cutting the Gates Power grip clamp off the heater hose and slipped with the razor knife... slipped bad 😖Ouch what's that from?
Time for aluminum and electric fans
I get the want for mechanical, just get a good electric fan set up and you're golden.
My 489 stays cool with DeWitt and 2 12 inch spal fans I bought used for 400 bucks.
I wouldn't mind a new brushless set up but it's expensive!
