View Full Version : Fan blade to radiator clearance

05-14-2007, 11:14 AM
I have a 1955 President. Is 3/4 of an inch enough clearance between the fan blade tip (at the closest point) and the radiator? I have a thinner shim . The thinner shim puts the blade 1/8 of an inch from the pulley. PO has a three belt capicity pulley on the crank shaft. I suspect he was thinking of adding an air conditioner, but he died. Any thoughts?
