Anyone care to measure their fan shroud for me? I had to move the LSx engine back about an inch to get the oil pan to clear. Now I need a longer fan shroud to get the mechanical fan in the right spot. No way I can see to space the fan forward. Here is a picture of my shroud and where I'm taking measurements.



Mine measures about 4.75" I need it to measure about 5.75-6.0". Any help would be appreciated.

Can't you purchase a spacer to push your fan back into the shroud?

The Crown Vic is an option. No way a pusher would get the job done. I'm extremely familiar with using an electric fan, but that's not the direction I want to go with this project unless I'm out of options.

The fan clutch mounts to threaded rod off the water pump. The fan bolts to the back of the clutch. There is no spacer I know of that I can use.

The shroud looks home made. Have you thought about finding a factory shroud?

Looks factory to me, the GM number looks convincing. Why do you say it looks home made?

I have an extension ring from a Monte Carlo in route from Texas to try out.

Just a guess because mine does not look like that. Mine is all one piece and yours looks like it is assembled in pieces. Of course I could be wrrong...been there before...

Mine is a factory shroud and it's made of 2 pieces . The ac shroud is the same way but longer. Hope this helps.
That's exactly the information I was looking for. I was hoping someone had the shroud and could measure it for me, knowing it's out there is helpful. I appreciate the constructive input.

I measured my shroud and an ac shroud at the same place as you did. I came up with 4.75 on both. When I say the AC shroud was longer it's for the side to side length . Jeremy

Thanks for putting a tape on it. I kind of wondered since the fan depth is going to be standard. My buddy is sending me an extension ring from a Monte Carlo shroud. It should extend well over what I need so I can trim it to exactly what I'm looking for.
