      Have about an inch of space between the clutch and radiator core

      Fan clutch measured 2.30 total height
      Moved the original radiator brackets forward 3/4 of an inch

      That's really cool! I had mine recored to a triple core and sadly, I can't get a clutch fan to fit to save my life. Glad it worked out for you.

      See here (click the link it contains to be taken to a fan/clutch assembly that will almost certainly fit). The matter is discussed here, here, here, here, and there are pictures and descriptions here.

        Glad you like it. It's one in a 5-part cooling system series; down at the bottom you can go forward and back to the different parts.
