My Spell Check didn't catch the misspelling of the word Clearance in the title !! Sorry about that !
Just tell 'em you were munching on a brownie when you said it....
Never did what you are proposing. Never needed to because I will only use crank-driven fans. Snow White makes a short water pump for the SBF and it should be possible to mount the radiator a little further ahead with some tinkering.
If I were going to though, I think I'd mount a full shroud on the front of the radiator with two holes in the shroud for two fans. If I couldn't find a commercially-available shroud, I'd fabricate one from sheet aluminum and pop rivet it together.
