Electric fan whistling



Master Mechanic
May 6, 2009
I'm running a Lincoln Mark 8 electric fan on my Griffin radiator with a small block Chevy 400 I have a running his fan for like almost 2 years but now I think I'm hearing a little whistling sound like a teapot Kettle I changed out the alternator but that is not it so could this be the fan and what does it mean if it's a little whistling or is this normal?

bearings dry up, you might want to search to see if this is a common problem with those fans and if there is a fix for them.
