I have had to cut a considerable amount out of the front crossmember on my chevelle clip to make room for my radiator. So much that I'm REAL close to the rear pivot point for my lower control arm. Not a problem though, I will plate it all in and make it better than new. My real question is, should I center the fan with the center of the radiator (vertically) or how much above or below center does the radiator meed to be. Most metric clip cars I have looked at don't have this problem. Just another stumbling block down a long hard road of imagineering.

Thanks, it looks like I'll have to get a single row 19"x 22" and a 4 blade steel fan with little to no spacer to make it all work.
108" wheelbase has made for a tight fit up there.
