Thinest Fan and Fan clutch ?

Somewhere between a t-98 Trans swap and a new radiator I have lost room for the fan clutch and fan. I only have about 3 inches of room there. I tried an eletric fan, but I didn't like it. ( noisey & too much amp draw )

Do I have the wrong fan clutch or ? It seems like it could be so much smaller / shorter.

Re: Thinest Fan and Fan clutch ?

Here's what I found: I have a '79 CJ-7. No clutch, 4 bladed fan. Bought an '85 for parts. Fan clutch and multi bladed fan. Tried swapping fan/clutch from '85 to '79. No room. Rad. in '85 is offset forward and seems thinner. This makes more room for big fan and clutch. Also the rad. cap is centered on '79, on drivers side for '85. Fan clutches seem somewhat standardized. Take your old one and go to an auto parts store and see if you can get a shorter one. Good Luck.
