Default Re: Underhood carnage on my F-1

i had one blade break off my 8ba in 1975. i was on my way to a meeting at night, i head a crash and the engine started vibrating really bad. i parked under a street light, noticed the missing blade (no leak). i slipped off the fan belt and went on my way. i found the missing blade jammed between my shroud and radiator, no damage to each. i guess i was lucky. when i heard the bang, it thought it was over for the motor.
