Re: Fan Shroud help!

Mine was originally a V8 truck. No AC or HD cooling. It’s in the forward mounts and I bought an OEM 7 blade clutch fan for it, the clutch means I don’t need a spacer as it sets into the shroud. If you can find one for sale (highly suggest paying for membership here to use the marketplace to post want to buy ads and buying/selling parts) go that route. It doesn’t parasitically rob power when it’s not needed. I have heard that there are longer spacers you can buy, but if I had to choose a regular fan over a clutch style, I’d honestly spend the money and go electric fans. I will probably go that route when I add AC.
