Electric Fans

I've got a 1977 MGB with the twin electric fans and brand new wiring
harness.  I mention the harness since in the 3 years before the harness
was replaced, I had never noticed the fans working.....but they sure do
now!  This means they didn't work for at least the past 5 years since
the car sat for 2 years before I bought it.  And, knowing the DPO
maintenance issues, I suspect they did not work for long before that

The fans both work but I swear they sound like a jet engine taking off
under the hood.  I'm going to be checking the mounts this weekend since
I suspect they are loose, but is there anything else to look for? 
There is no squeaking from them....just a vibration and noise that is

4 plastic blades on each, if that matters.
