69 Fan in a 68?

Hi all:

I just installed a new engine (Blueprint 355) in my 68 RS. It has a long water pump. I am looking to put a new fan and clutch on. I was looking at Ground Up's website and saw that the 67-68 fan and clutch is for the short water pump. The 69-72 fan and clutch is for the long water pump.

Would there be any issues in putting the 69-72 setup in my 68? I didn't think there would be, but I wanted to check here first. I have been known to order parts that I thought would work, only to find out that they won't

Thanks for the help.

- Chris

Re: 69 Fan in a 68?

The clutch hubs were different part numbers between short and long pump applications and the fans were also different, but only with 67-68 being 5 blade and 69 & later being 7 blade.
I'd be also guessing the 69 & later fan & clutch would be best for you.

Nov 68 Van Nuys. 327 floor-shift-auto, Frost Green and not much else when new.

I have the '69 fan/clutch/shroud setup in my '67 w/AC and it works great.
