06HemiRam is on a distinguished road

Pulled the fan today, 15 minutes might be an overstatement in how long it takes. Nothing came out so I messed around with the heater controls, the recirculator door seems to move just as it should, there may be a little slack in one position but none in the fan off position. Fan seemed as though it was still tight and the more I think about it the more I think the fan is just rubbing on the housing that it sits in. When I put the fan back in the noise changed, disappeared at lot speeds and only happens at high speeds. When anyone replaced or removed the fan, did they notice a gasket or anything between the fan motor and housing? There wasn't anything on mine and it seems like something that small could be the difference in clearance to cause this ticking/clunking noise.
