Hi there, I accept what you say about copper and aluminium seizure but I've never come accross a problem using it. Re viscouse fan couplings, If you buy a German Sachs coupling which is original BMW factory fitment it shows very clearly on the box that it must LAY FLAT during pre sale storage, Once fitted and the fluid inside is in it's working position it must never be laid flat if removed from the engine, I've been working on BMW's since 1972 and in the UK it is general knowledge that you never lay them flat because they will not work properly afterwards as I have found out, Peter
