The correct fan is the steel 5 blade unit...2 of the blades are offset...as mentioned it bolts directly to the water pump flange.

The only year for a clutch fan with BB was 1968...but, there was a short water pump that year.

I have a 4 core in our 70 BB TH400 L78 car...it's tight, but it works.

Your photos seem to show a wider space than I remember...but, I'll have to check to be sure.

THANKS GUYS !!!
Appreciate the help !!!

I will be picking up the original (shot) rad from the original owner for the resto.
For now the gameplan is get it running for the local spring indoor car show "barn finds" and put a few laps on it this summer.
Teardown fall 17

Sounds like I'll pick up a repop fan for now.

So, they are still doing that. I told them a while back when i bought the same fan that the spacer wasn't needed.

They could care less, that's why they sell caution fan stickers. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/dunno.gif[/img]
