Thought I had it on the down hill-but- bolted the engine in, I've only have two inches between the radiator & my KSE tandem pump lower pulley! Is it time to fire up the cutting torch?

Had that problem also. I used the fiber fan,since it has a flat front. I even trimmed the back of the blades. So far,no heating problems.

I had the same problem also, I put an electric fan in front of the radiator. I then mounted a switch inside so that I can flip it on only when I need to.

does your car have the back side of the cross member notched? Dirtworks charges extra for this option ($175) and it is required if you run a belt driven fuel pump off the front along with a fan spacer.

Like the others, I had the same problem with my KSE pump. You can purchase HTD pulley and run the pump off the water pump which will allow you to run a shorter crank drive mandrel. This will then clear the radiator and crank bolt. You will need to run a 49 tooth pulley on the KSE and a 26 tooth on the crank mandrel. You'll also have to shorten the drive mandrel in a lathe. You water pump pulley will depend on how much under drive you want, I chose a 34 tooth (30%). Hope this helps. It would have been easier to have DirtWorks prepared chassis, but I didn't know about the option.

They call it the 108 cut. You can do it yourself if you have to its not really that tough but would have to have the motor out to do it. Just cut off the back side then weld bhack in a 1/8" or so plate to fill it in.
