Fault find that could save big $$$

EL Falcon /
Recently have posted questions re: Vibration caused from using heater / fan or air con on 3 or boost .
Took to several mechanics to get ideas and did simple checks for vacum leaks etc. They all said compressor main bearing or water pump wich if a/c compressor big $$ not to mention a pain in the A$#% to change ,
Finally in pesistance paid off and i sourced the problem. The thermo fans out of balance by simply disconecting while running it stopped instantly. one of the fans was cracked causing centrivical force to be unbalanced.
With some 5min aroldite and a good clean its GONE!!!.
You wouldn't think that a rubber mounted fan could cause so much greif and such a noticeble vibration.
And how many have been led astray to have water pumps and a/c compessors replaced leaving a hole in the pocket thank $#% not mine.
