Bad Vibrations

So I finally get around to replacing the rad fan motor
in the 5kS. After spending more time than I think it should
have taken, I get the thing in and go to test it. Guess
what - it's out balance and vibrating mightily! Damn thing
is shaking to and fro with an amplitude of about half an
inch (or should I say 13mm?). This on a new motor with new
fan blade installed and (presumably) balanced at the
factory. No, I didn't knock off any of the balance clips...

Needless to say, I'll be getting a replacement for it, but
I was curious if anyone else has had a similar experience.
