Hey, this is for 5th gen big block owners. I'm having fan/shroud clearance issues.
I've had a BBC in my 5th gen for probably 25 years, but can't remember if I ever had a mechanical fan on it. My car now has a Champ's aluminum oil pan on it so I can't compare clearance, although I seem to remember it was pretty close.
I am working on Barry's '79 with a big block. It already had the BB, but all the mounts were dead, now with new mounts (and everything else) we have clearance issues.

#1 How much clearance is there between the oil pan and the cross member?
#2 Mechanical fan clearance to the shroud?
#3 Does anyone have the part # for the shells that bolt to the block, I'm starting to think we may have the taller truck mounts.
Thanks, Ralph:texas:

I thought those were what I had on (Whole Shot) but I can't be sure.
