I am using a standard 57 fan, and a 57 six cylinder radiator and support.
No way the fan clear the shroud with the bottom radiator hose in place.

see photos. [the shroud is rubbing the fan at the bottom with it sitting against the lower hose]

Is classic industries going to remedy this? [either refund price including shipping or send me the correct fitting part]
Why don't you just notch it out so the shroud slides down over the hose. I don't see the big problem here. And make a panel to cover up that big hole under your radiator.

That is what I have seriously considered.

But as I posted earlier, I could make a new shroud easier from a $2 oven dish [that would look better]
I still need to Alter the side brackets to lower it enough and make a filler panel on top so, the labour is about the same.

So for an extra initial $2, I still have the existing shroud to sell to try and recover the $300 I spent to get it here
.
If I tamper with it, I have no recourse with Classic Industries




Also in the last 12 hours, I borrowed a friends 57 6 cylinder radiator, and the shroud is still to high for a V8.
The 57 top tank would probably gain an extra approx. 3/8" if I lowered the radiator.
His Radiator is rotten, so I will buy the tanks [which ends this debate over radiators fitting]

edit: attached is a photo of a fan shroud made from an oven roasting dish [this example is aluminium with an electric fan]
They are braindead easy to make to a nice standard

There is nothing wrong with the fan shroud or Classic Industries. There are issues, a few, but it's not with them.

If you try to fit it to a V8 application some chopping and shifting needs to be done [either rad support or shroud]

Their Catalog is misleading!
Or maybe I've misunderstood American Tri-5 owners and they consider ill fitting parts an acceptable standard

Something you need to realize.

Classic Industries did not design this shroud, or manufacture it. I doubt if anyone that works there has a thimbleful of knowledge about it. Someone else makes it and wrote the instructions too.

Don't you think that it is time for you to quit complaining and put this to bed?

This IS the Classic Industries section. I think Kerry would probably like to hear from them.

I'm surprised Trifivers here have had all this patience with this nut and trying to appease him. This pinhead has 35 years road racing/mechanic experience and can't figure this problem out and blames everybody but himself. On and on and on,this too high,wrong tank here,lower tank there,this too low,this rubs here,brackets way off,measurements way off,we don't know this or that and its all our fault and vendors lie. Well listen to this pal,if American Trifivers are stupid and accept substandard ill fitting parts then become your own seller. If you've made your own shrouds out of a 2 buck fish oven fry pan and had all this sucess and good design,then why didn't just build your own for your car and save you all that money and complaining and aggravation,if you're so sharp. Lots of good folks here have tried to help(more than 50 responses to your post) and you still gripe and we accept ill fitting parts as our standard,oh you're such a kind individual pal.I hope you fit another 2 buck fish pan for your installation being that you have 35 years experience. Have a good day pal.

OK guys, no more comments from here on out unless it is from the vendor. Any more and i will delete them.
Thank you for understanding,Terry.

P.S. The only reason i`m leaving it open is to give the vendor a chance to respond.
