Nah it's not. It's pretty loose when cold but stiffens up when warm. When you first start the engine it "roars" for a few seconds but then settles down.

Just did this twice....

The first time somehow the oil vanished, now I couldn't see where 18 ml of 1000 cwt oil went, the seal looked in place the bolts were tight, there were no oil smears. The second time I put some extra sealer around the rubber, and now it seems to be working perfectly.

Hmm that's awkward, did you notice any oil spill around the area?

UPDATE
During the first 1000 km I noticed that it wasn't disengaging as well as it should when the engine was cold. My fuel consumption went from 17L/100km to 20L/100km (on LPG). Nowadays it runs much better after 1000 km and I am getting 18L/100km. It roars on start-up then disengages after a few seconds. I notice it re-engaging when engine is warm.

Mind you when I was getting 17L/100km, the viscous clutch fan was completely shot so I was probably getting better mileage than I should have. Yesterday towing 1.5 ton in 37 degree weather, front and rear AC running full blast, driving for hours and in heaps of Sydney traffic the engine temps never went beyond 85 degrees. Before I was constantly hitting 105 degrees under same conditions. I love this fix!

One thing to note if you do this like I just did turn the fan shaft up for an hour before installing as it may no work until you do this as the oil has to run into the right place

I took a few kms before it was running ok and oil moved in the right places. It's well over 50,000 kms now after the rebuild and still running strong.

I put a brand new one in mine but I'm not happy with it. Was supposed to be a Davies Craig replacement but had no markings or branding. I reckon it's too tight even after 5000km of run-in and I suspect it is a cheap copy. Pity I through the original away, although it's bearing was fairly sloppy.

mine is still running perfectly 80,000 kms later and that's with one full tube. So I would say chuck the whole tube in.
