In the meantime, I left the wood off thinking it would help circulate air. I thought about it and it didn't do the 40 minute thing back when the wooden cover was off. It might have been coincidence but I wasn't sure. There were too many tweaks the first weeks which makes trouble shooting hard.

"Back Before the Future"--the story before the story of a crazy dude trying to timetravel...kindof like expedia...only bumpier...
I apologize for how many times I say "clicking" in advance:
What is going on? I don't feel like this amount of clicking (and the (?blower?) fan not staying on) is not normal...

When your AC is switched on, that turns the compressor on which also turns the radiator cooling fans via the fan relay. There are two circuit breakers, one for the radiator fans and one for the blower which also would click if they are going open circuit (to much current draw).
If you run the AC without running the blower at a high speed, the AC will probably cycle (turn on and off) very quickly.
Your blower circuit breaker should be a 30 amp. breaker. Some early cars they used a 25 amp breaker and it would cause the blower to cycle.
If your AC is cycling that quickly, you may be low on refrigerant. The fan relay is normal to make a clicking sound when it turns the radiator fans on and off.
The clicking was worse in the video when I had the fan on high so I don't think it was cycling for the ac/low blow reason.
The car had only been running a few minutes in the driveway so it wasn't the 40 minute issue. But I think there's a connection and the clicking is related to the issue. It may just be the symptom and not the problem, though. Car temp isn't getting hot (although the temp gauge always seems lazy) that I can tell. If there was an issue with the radiator fan wouldn't the temp start to rise?
