Default Re: Two-Blade failures are caused by ......

My 28 Phaeton has a small dent from someone throwing a fan blade years ago. I'm running an original fan, but like to keep my speed down to 45 or less. I wasn't paying attention to speed and found myself doing 57 on the freeway once, but that was the only time I drove that fast.

I also think the slight fan flex over time is what causes the fan to crack where it leaves the hub.
