Replacing the clutch.
Yes, I understand that. But the clutch fan is attached to the water pump. If the bearing is bad then that can explain the 18 wheel fan noise you are referring to. Also why not convert to electric fan since you are already in for a 100 bucks for the clutch and another 100 would get you a electric fan. In the long run you save money and not have to worry about the exploding fan impeller and the clutch.
