Yes, you have to re-use the metal sleeves.  I used a torch to aide in removing them from the old bushings.

If the fan wiring is faulty, it most likely  has a cracked head.   Even more-so if the owner is saying it needs freeze out plugs...btw I've never had a freeze out plug go on a cq in 25 years.  

I'd go in assuming that this engine has been overheated and will need at least a new cylinder head.  If it does truly need freeze out plugs, plan on pulling the engine and doing a complete tear down.

Nice car!  Yeah, not many seen but there are a few tucked away in peoples garages in the area.

I lived in Greensburg, PA for 15 years.  I'm still in PA but a few hours away..on the PA/MD border near Hagerstown.
