I noticed a noise from under the hood & found
abrasions on the tips of the fan blade where they were
hitting the front of the A/C compressor now and then.
The shaft of the fan clutch/pulley combination wobbles
a bit when I move it with my hands, looks normal when
idling, otherwise the motor runs fine, cools properly,
no leaks.

One mechanic told me the water pump would have to be
replaced, $120 for parts, $300 for labor. I think I
could do that myself, but am worried about breaking
the water pump bolts due to age & corrosion.

I have the Helm/FMC shop manual for this engine. It
mentions a special tool T83T-6312-A&B to remove the
fan & clutch assembly.
My local dealer was no help in giving any info about
this tool. I was thinking of removing the radiator
first and then the whole fan/clutch and water pump as
a unit. Any comments would be appreciated.

Some of the list subscribers may have missed some list
mail yesterday and today. Our dedicated hosting company
made changes to our sendmail config 3 days ago without
realizing I had customized it. In the process of trying
to get everything working correctly, I broke this list

Everything should work normally now.
