Big block fan clutch clearance problem
I'm putting together a 69 Camaro COPO clone with a iron head 427. I'm using the curved neck 4 core radiator, standard long water pump. I don't have room for the 7 blade fan and fan clutch. Fan clutch measures 3.4375" total height. It hits the radiator. Does anyone know if there's a thinner clutch out there. I've tried Ricks, Classic, I even called flex-a-lite for advice. Everybody says it's a tight fit but there's got to be something that can be done. I want to keep it stock appearing but I'm running out of options. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks for the help.
