Question will a 69 bb camaro fan shroud fit on a 67 bb camaro w long water pump

hi
I have 67 camaro with a 1970 396 long water pumped engine installed using a 7 blade 18" clutched fan, I need more room around the fan, it rubs sometimes.
will a 69 big block fan shroud work? I know the opening on the 69 shroud is larger, will i need any other mounts to install?
thxs for the help

Is the fan perfectly centered in the shroud ?

You can enlarge the mounting holes and center the shroud to the fan.

Re: will a 69 bb camaro fan shroud fit on a 67 bb camaro w long water

hi it is perfectly centered.
I have maybe 3/16" clearence on both sides of the fan,
it rubs when cold sometimes and usually fine when hot,
I do have the long water pump so things are not in the correct place as GM intended,
I figured since 69 was a long water pump big block, gm fixed the fan shroud clearence issue
and I could just install a 69 shroud and gain xtra clearence.
NPD shows a 69BB will work on a 67-68BB shroud with the adding of a different top mount?
thx scott

A BBC engine is in the same position in all 67-69 Camaros.

Is your fan a 17 to 18" diameter ? If not, your fan is too big.

The opening is typically 19 to 19.5"

I have a 68 BBC with long water pump and I used a 69 BBC shroud and top mounting bracket. You have to have BBC frame mounts.

Thanks,
