    Can you use a factory /6 fan shroud out of a '67-'76 A-body with a BB? Thanks

    the fan circle is offset about 2 inches one way in a V8 and 2 inches the other way or about 4 inches difference in a slant 6.

    Thanks!!! I knew someone would have the answer. What if you just rotated the shroud 180*? Would that give the correct spacing?

    I can't say for sure that would work since i haven't done it myself. you may need a smaller diameter fan.

    Yes- it may work. I swapped a 383 in place of my slant and rotated the shroud 180 degrees. I had to make 4 pieces to offset it to the pass side about 2 inches. I made them out of some 3/4" wide thin aluminum flat stock. Mounted the shroud to them and then bolted it to the rad. Centered the fan up perfectly and cost next to nothing. I used the same radiator too.
