I put two spacers on my fan/water pump. It wobbled a little and my car builder said it would be OK. But has anyone else ever had this problem. I'm gonna check it, but any comments?

put about 4" of spacers in ours one time next race water pump broke and fan went through radiator that was brand new I would check your water pump bearings for play

I run 3 spacers on mine, and it has a slight
wobble, nothing too bad. I haven't had
a problem in over 2 years. What I had to do
is debur the spacers and the back of the fan
to get them as smooth as possible, and that
gave me even less of a wobble.

I wouyld be worried about the harmonics and vibrations caused by the wobbly fan breaking things like the water pump, or loosening fan bolts or water pump bolts..etc..

get a one piece spacer and a new water pump i'm willing to bet the bearing is shot in it if not now it will be after a couple of nites
