Ran the motor this morning, cold, with the altenator belt off for 20 seconds (don't try this at home kids). No noise...hmmmm. Changed to a new belt, played with the shims and tension for awhile. Much improved. Now I'm back to the original question/statement of just having the vibration over bumps.

Of course, every modification I have done to this car has been to firm up the ride, so I expect a bit of harshness, but this is out of the ordinary. I'll get it eventually.

BTW. I used the leaf blower for cooling after the brief run this AM; very effective.
