I want to change my stock 4 blade with spacer fan to 7 blade clutch fan based on what I've read in these forums. I have a 67' 327 with stock shroud. Will the 69 setup work with a short pump to place the fan inside the shroud or do I need a 67' 302 fan clutch and if so where would I find it?
Thanks in advance from anyone who has made this conversion.

67 327 A/c cars came with the clutch fan. I don't know if it's different than what was used in 69. The repro shops will have it, possibly your local parts store will have somnething compatible.

Jim,
You're right, some 67's with AC had a clutch fan but from what I can tell the fan they used was a 5 blade and I'm wanting to go with a 7 blade which was apparantly used on 302 z28s. Rick's shows that the 7 blade fan only fits the 69 fan clutch which (I'm only guessing) might have been sized for a long water pump. Not sure what 7 blade fan fits what clutch that works with a short water pump, so am looking for all advise I can get. Really apprecitate your response as usual.

Water pump hub and clutch hub mating is what you have to look for. Some are large base circle and some are small, You should find a universal clutch to mount it. Be sure to space the fan blade about 1" into your shroud opening.
