That is not unusual. Looks like a lot of fans from that era

But it doesn't seem like there are that many left! It's a dying breed.

i have a set of old lawn mower blades you can try on your rumbler.
they're a little longer than your fan blades, might improve air flow

I'm a little confused on the symptoms now. It seems that it simply overheats when the heater is being used. But at first it seemed to only do it when the "vent" was open. The vent is where the heater is getting air from the scoop at the rear of the hood between the wipers. It brings air into the cowl and down and over the heater core into the car. It just still seems like the darn thing will get hot when I am using the heater and the vent is open.

But I plan on doing a little static test and see what really triggers it. I just keep forgetting.

Im still thinking that when the heater valve is open the coolant is not going through the radiator to get cooled for some reason. It might be interesting to put a thermometer in the radiator when the heat is running to see if the temp in the radiator goes up or down in the radiator itself. Wondering if there was some sort of restriction integrated into the heater valve that may be missing. The vent making a difference makes no sense at all.
Does it do it just sitting idling or only when moving

I keep thinking (even tho my Dr says I'm not allowed to do that!) that, if the heater hoses are somehow reversed then it may interfere with the coolant flow in the engine.

If that don't fix it, then for sure the framistat is interfering with the flux capacitor, which will always affect the anti-matter converter and cause the warp cores to overheat!

It seems to overheat in traffic. This is the thing, I really need to do a static test in the driveway to see if I can make it happen. I just haven't done it, I forget if I am not driving it.
