Hey Pape (may I call you Pape?),

Now that the mystery of the mysterious cable has been solved the broken-fan-blade-throwing-off-the-waterpump-bearing thing has me nervous. I just bought the car and the blade was part of the whole "as-is" deal. Would I feel a vibration or something if the bearing was blown? Would there be any collateral damage if this was the case, or would I simple be replacing the waterpump along with fan?

Feel free to scare the crap outta my wallet as you let me know that what's what.

'preciate it.
