Re: How much space between fan and radiator on 258??
Alec, I just went thru the exact same mod. my radiator was shot and replaced with a 3 row, well i didn't realize there was so little room for expansion in there.
the choices were search for a shorter shaft or move the radiator. i moved the radiator to the front of the grill/bracket and have plenty of room now. plus it's FREE!!
just pull off the grill and make a small bend at the bottom of the grill so you can slide the grill back on allowing for more room between the fan and the core. install the bolts from the other direction after you move the retainers to the radiator and VIOLA (sp)!!
you got it!
i hope this still works with the glass front end, let us know
by the way, this idea came from this board! thanks again guys/gals
