That fan blade is not a original type. Remove that spacer, should not be there.

You guys are right. My fan blades join the fan arms off center with 3/4 of the bent blade hanging over the arm and 1/4 of the blade is where the actual rivets are. It resembles a kitchen knife with the blade hanging be low the handle and the other side of the blade is level with the back of the handle. The GM arms join the blade almost in the middle with the blades actually hang over the arm on each side.

Sorry to be so technical

Is the Camaro and Chevelle fan for the L78 a different design then the Nova's ? Those cars don't sound the same as a Nova.

The GM fan is pricey.Does anyone know of a truck or other GM model which is similar.

The chevelle and Camaros are both clutch fans
So yes they are different.

Default Fan Pics.

Some original L78 fans will not have the W stamp.

You can always buy the correct repop fan that "The Parts Place" sells. For about $240.00 instead of $500.00 or more for a original, might be the right way to go.

** A dollar bill should stay against the radiator if the fan is drawing properly.

They forget that us Canadians have not had a dollar bill in decades. A loonie won't work. Why not put a $10 dollar bill in your spokes and make all the noise you want Ken ?
