Can someone tell me how much space there should be between the front of the
fan and the rad and/or the space between the crank nut and the rad on a 100?
I can snuggly fit my finger between the fan and the rad and when I measure
that finger I get about 5/8th of an inch. And, yes, the distance hasn't
changed from before I removed and replaced the rad.
Does one really need to loosen the rad before changing the belt? I wanted to
remove the belt and run the car briefly with the generator removed to see if
the noise was 'gone'. I gave up last night, but I will go back to it.
