Gaskets and seals

I agree with Dave. If I knew then what I know now, I should have just dropped the engine when I bought it, did every gasket and seal I could find and put it back in. Rear main seal, the rear coolant...

When the ice stops, I'll get under the hood. It's at the bottom of the stroke transition. Sounds like a really loud relay. Thanks guys!

Solved - Wipers started clicking

Today, on every cycle of the wipers, a noticeably loud click is coming from the dash. I could swear the wiper relay is in the engine compartment. Any thoughts on what the clicking could be?

Update.

Indy did the fan and FSR yesterday. Pretty much spot on to the 6 hours for the entire job. He did remove the steering wheel (which was ok, seeing as when I put it on last I was out by a...

"While they're in there" the FRS will get replaced. I'll shoot some grease at the bearings this weekend and see what happens. I'll keep you guys posted.

Getting worse now. Sounds brutal and mechanical (it is definitely the fan). I'll try to remove the intake plenum from the engine side to see if I can lube the bearings. I have it booked at my indy...

And it's only that subtle turn left that does it. No other turn or spot on the steering wheel (right or left) can I get it to be repeatable. Agree on the gyroscopic forces.

I'll keep an eye on it...

It's such a gentle turn that does it. I try doing it so softly that I'm not slamming the fan one way or another, but maybe that's enough centripetal force to drift the blower to the right. My 535 has...

Had similar thoughts on FSR. Any idea on the connection between blower speed and clock spring? How would anything in the steering wheel and associated electronics be connected to the blower speed?

Hi guys,

Interesting head scratcher for the group.

Thanks for the diagrams. I have power at fuse 74, but no power on 9, 18 or 1 on the connector. I'll have to get daylight to dig further behind the panels. Something isn't making it to the connector.
