Re: Need fan shroud for Be Cool radiator

Hope someone has a good answer because I'm looking too. I couldn't find an aftermarket shroud that looked good to me and had a chance of fitting without major mods. When I put the BeCool in, I used the stock SBC shroud. It doesn't cover the entire cooling area on the sides but does fit top to bottom and works fine with the long water pump setup. I also have a March system but don't think it matters since the length is the same with the long pump. I ended up using a 17in flex fan and a two inch spacer (Note: Measure fan size first, then buy the fan unless you need a brand new fan to hang on your wall as decoration). There's about about 3/4" clearance at the closest point between fan and shroud and it's never hit. If you mount the radiator so the top of the radiator is level with the radiator support, then everything lines up for the top bolt on the stock shroud support. For piece of mind and looks, I used a SS round-head hex bolt and locking nut/washer for the top mount. This seem like a good idea rather than just relying on a bolt into plastics to hod the whole assembly in place. For the bottom, I fabbed an "L" bracket from aluminum to hold it in place. Drilled two holes to hold the bracket in place on the shroud and then put Dynamat on the bracket where it touched the radiator. I've been running it for about two years with no problems with either the shroud setup or radiator. FYI, I have the 327 stock frame mounts and use aftermarket two-piece motor mounts. Another frame/motor mount setup may be different. I'd rather have something that looks better, but this works and isn't overly offensive to my eye. Purists of course, have a completely different opinion and have shared that opinion on a few occasions.

I thought a member here (JimM or Click) had a shroud made. A search may find it or they may see this. It was very nice.
