Blowers n fan spacers?

How do you guys with blown sbc's set up your mechanical fans n spacers? It looks like I need around 5 inches of spacers to clear the blower belt???
Any ideas? HG

I was built with the body of a God! To bad it was buddah.

Electric fan/s are the way to go. You don't want to put your fan out that far from the pump. If you do use a 5" spacer you will probably be wearing out water pumps pretty regularly. If you have 5" you can fit a Ford electric fan in there, they move enough air to keep anything cool. The one you want ins off of a Mark VIII Lincoln. You can usually find them for sale on e-bay or you can hit your local wrecking yard. The good thing about them is they have a built on shroud. That's what I used on my Camaro, I don't have the room for one on my Buick (I already tried).
