    Double check the fan and the tension on the belt. I once was angry and indignant about ‘cheap ass bullsh1+ water pumps!’;went through three from Advance and a Delco before replacing my fan on a 403 Trans Am.

    I did put a new clutch On a 7 blade fan .. the belt seems tight and I can’t turn the alt pulley by hand .. I’ll double check it all again thanks bud

    Bearing failure as it feels bumpy when you turn by hand?

    Can you elaborate on the specs of your nasty 430?
