Default Re: Electric fans

I would recommend that you scrounge around junk yards, ebay, old car buddies, etc. and try to locate a radiator core support bracket and corresponding air deflector (between the front bumper and core support) from a '49 or '50 6 cylinder car. Due to the length of the 6, Ford had to place the radiator and core support further forward, so it bolted forward of the core support by roughly 4 inches. That would most likely give you the needed room for the mechanical fan to clear the radiator. I went through this scenario a few years ago, only in reverse since I was swapping the 6 cylinder for a V-8. I might still have those parts, but not sure. You can PM me and we can talk.
