Need a Spot
So I had just put a new radiator in my 91, and I had planned on doing the fan in a week or so, because the stock fan was lookin' pretty rough.

ANYHOW....sure enough, driving down the street and I start overheating. Pull over, and one of the f#%#ing fan blades literally flew off and poked a nice hole in my brand new radiator. Speaking of fan blades, would missing blades cause the engine to run rough/idle strangely?

Pretty awesome. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/angry.gif" alt="" />

Also, any guys in the forum in Phoenix that would be up for helping me out with my rig sometime? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

I think you mean center support bracket / bearing. The Wtr pump runs off the timing belt.
