      I have a fluidyne radiator but now can not install a mechanical fan due to clearance. i used the 260 tiger timing cover and a 289K code hp pump. Is there another water pump with shorter/tighter dimensions? Do any of you all have any suggestions? I have a 14" pusher fan but it is not enough. will a larger pusher fan or dual 12 fan fit? Any help is appreciated.

      Car still rocks! Just runs hot.

      Hey Frank:

      I had the Fluidyne radiator installed before I found out that there are other options out there, including re-coring the original with a modern core.

      I’ll have to look at the water pump, but I’m able to run a mechanical fan on mine with a very small clearance. I also got a six-blade fan from a Ford parts place in Ohio. I don’t recall the exact specs off the top of my head, but it doesn’t need to be trimmed to fit in the engine compartment, unlike the $200+ ones you see that have been trimmed to fit on eBay.

      Drop me a note if you need more info on it, best of luck.
