Radiator to shroud clearance??
In my '46 Chevy Panel I've got a 350 sbc and a 4 core alminum radiator with a 2750 cfm 17" electric fan. It is mounted by three brackets that I made but I want to put an alminum shroud around it. With the brackets the fan is mounted almost tight to the radiator and I need to pull it back alittle when I mount it to the shroud to get better air flow. As close as I can figure I can only move the fan back 1/2" from the radiator any more and I get to close to the water pump pulley. Will this be enough clearance to get the full air flow effect of the shroud?
