    The shroud on the fan on mine did the same thing. The dealer said to cut off the large rubber hose that runs through it a couple of inches to the front side of the radiator. You will probably be able to see where it is rubbing on the underside of the hood. Cutting if back seemed to work for me. An easy fix if that is all you need to do.

    The drive shaft has been redesigned twice since I bought my T273 in 2006. Might be the shaft on the scavenged model like yours is the original version, so you wouldn't want that one anyway. My dealer told me it was guaranteed to fail around 250 hrs or beyond. The new ones are universal jointed (like a car) and the dealer told me that none of those have failed so far as he knew.
    Good luck.

    It may be an easy fix, but you had better look at the underlying reason for it rubbing- obviously the frame is flexing, or something else serious. Considering the frame issues that are already presented, I wouldn't assume that trimming some hose back fixes the problem. It just fixed the noise.

    My thoughts exactly!
