Engine going IN

Too close for me, engines move, they lift.

I have this clutch on the way from Rockauto


Should be in by Tuesday! That's the last piece of my puzzle at the moment to get the motor running.
I don't know how close is too close but I like to see a couple inches room between fan blades and rad, but my rad is nearly irreplaceable.

I decided not to use the shroud for maintenance reasons, I want to see the lines and access the clamps.

On my Roadrunner, I went with electric fans, easy enough, and fairly reliable.

Thinking about a fan clutch myself, saves horsepower.
