Thanks for the input, guys. All of this makes good sense to me. By the way, Tom and Jim, you might be on to something. I didn't mention it before, but the alternator is showing signs that it is nearing end of life (voltmeter shows good charging with just the engine running, but the Ignition light surges on/off when the fan, lights, etc. are on). Using a solid tube to detect vibrations around suspect points on the motor has been suggested to me once before (will heed that advice). The temporary removal of the alternator belt might tell us about water pump/alternator. Glad to hear any other theories out there? Otherwise, will advise of the outcome when it's determined. Again, many thanks for the suggestions!
