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

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.
