Finally found that weird noise that every now and then made a little noise. Plan on taking it into the shop tomorrow and taking it apart .
What should I expect to find?
Is there bearings or brass sleeves that are worn?? Or should i put one on order tonight?

Maybe your fan shaft bushings, maybe a cracked fan blade. Take it apart and check it out before you order any parts.

The blade should not have any cracks near the hub, or anywhere else. The original bearing was a bronze bushing. It needs to be oiled with thick oil such as rear axle oil. There is a screw on the hub which is to be removed for oiling. Some owners have inserted a grease fitting there and need a grease gun to grease it.

There are also ball bearing hubs being installed on some cars. Those have sealed bearings and need very little attention unless the bearings wear out.

Anyway, my first guess is that you still have the bronze bushing and some lubrication might fix your problem.

Thanks fellas ,the blades seem fine with no issues there.

I have the hub with screw on it ,its definelty binding up when you turn it by hand , I have the hub with the screw in it. Wasnt sure if there are bearings as part of the hub or simply brass sleeves .

The adjustment arm is stuck to the pulley so i will need to put in a vice and back the bolt out of the hub and the arm section. pulley

There are two bushings in that hub, and don't forget to put a new felt in the retainer when you reassemble it. The brass plug is available from the vendors.

If you still have problems, Chaffin's has a sealed bearing hub that works great!

My old one was so worn it wobbled severely, now every thing is Better!
