671 Blower doing my head in and not even set up yet!

Hi all! Well its been a while since ive been on here, what with moving to the UK n getting set back up! But im not really a computer wiz so here gos!...

Ive just brought what i was told to be a good 671 blower... Now after donkey's years working with blowers... Top fuel dragsters etc ive really only worked with teflon stripped ones that were brand new and not really done the whole pro street project for myself... But this little problem is niggling me...

I unpacked the unit to see it spotless, its a recon gmc unit... Inside, rotors, gears all clean apart from red grease on the mesh. Over all good with very minor scores, rotors turn free with no grates but a funny noise. Sounds like the rotors have some kind of fluid in them... I can hear it trickling around or more like a very quiet slosh. Now... Nowhere on land or net sais anything about a fluid or some kind of liquid in the rotors itself. Now what is it? N if its not meant to be in there then do i risk stripping down n re gauging myself or just leave it in there? At first i thought it maybe some kind of attempt of balancing or mild harmonic type? Or cooling... But now such the vagueness and no info at all its begining to play on my mind weather to fit n run or strip!

Please help? Thanks!
