It was a couple blades that needed bent back ever so slightly.  All is well now.  Well as far as the fan anyway.  Now I need to pull the gas tank, replace the steering box, replaced the fuel line, pull the transmission to reseal it, etc......

Be careful about bent blades...The whole fan it's self might be tweaked, thus causing and imbalance.  This imbalance will eat up water pump bearings mighty fast.  I would look for another fan to replace this one. 

Another problem with an imbalanced fan is it could cause one of the blades to come loose and cause some major carnage under the hood.
