Re: Radiator distance from core support

The griffin exact fit might be the one you want,not direct fit.
Although my direct fit with dual fans couldn't fit any closer to the support than it already does,it's just about touching.

Re: Radiator distance from core support

Am I making a big ta-do about nothing? Is this an acceptable distance. Finally home from work and got some pics of it on the car and it's actual distance.
What say you?
Thanks, Jim

Re: Radiator distance from core support

The distance from the core support is not the issue. How far is the fan from the radiator?

Will you be able to install the factory fan shroud? I'm thinking no.

You may have to change the fan spacer for clearance. You will also most likely need to fab up for the shroud

Re: Radiator distance from core support

It seems that direct fit means the holes line up and exact fit means the holes line up and it is correctly spaced from the core support. At least this is my suspicion....

What gets me is that the guy from Cold Case swears the spacing is accurate Obviously it's not or I just got a bad one.

What did he model it after? Might not have been an original radiator.

They seem to believe they DID model it after an original. It'll be going back because of the damage it arrived with but now I need to decide whether to have them send me another undamaged one or just a refund.

I will have to change the fan spacer. I have a two inch spacer that gives me about 3" from the blades to the belts but that now is about 1/2" too long. I'm not sure if they make them but I could run a 1 1/4" spacer and still have over 2" blades to belts and clear the radiator as well... I think.
How far off the radiator does the fan shroud go?
The radiator comes with fan shroud holders at the bottom of the radiator. Not sure what would need fabrication. It's supposed to accept a stock fan shroud.
Thanks, Jim

Here is a pic of the factory fan shroud installed. The bracket that attaches the fan shroud to the radiator support will not not reach the hole in the top center on the shroud if the radiator is too far away from the radiator support.

Guess won't know until you try

Re: Radiator distance from core support

I have a Be-Cool rad with electric fans and it sits about an inch back from the main core support.
