I believe Flex-A-Lite makes one meant for SB-chevys. What radiator you running?

Re: cooling a 350

I had a real problem getting mine to cool untill I put a pusher and a puller on the radiator. I stagered them so that they covered as much of it as possible, but I am running an auto. So there is the tranny heat getting into the picture also. The biggest thing is go with a newer radiator and get a fan that covers as much of it as possible. I would not go back to a clutch or flex fan just becouse I can turn mine off for water crossings and not put the fan into or through the radiator. Good Luck

i run a spal dual 11" setup and it works great. the integrated shrout fits the jeep radiator perfectly. it runs about $200 but it is well worth it. i tried some of the cheaer setups and they did not work.

Re: cooling a 350

I would recommend taking a width measurement and ordering a griffin aluminum one from jegs or summit. I got mine for $179.00 and welded aluminum tabs on it-or you can have a shot do it for cheap-then you will have a brand new radiator that will be hard to overheat-I have never had a problem yet....I also use a fan out of a early 90's mercury sable or ford taurus-they pull over 3200 cfm and can be found in the yard for about $30
