I purchased a reproduction fan shroud for a 20 inch rad from Mustangs Unlimited. I know the coug didn't come with one but I hate working on the engine with the fan blades being so open. It's supposed to be made from original Ford tooling. But when I installed it, the rad hose cut-outs don't match up (see pic in my gallery) and the fan scrapes near the top :angryfi: I suspect it scrapes because the upper rad hose is preventing the shroud to move up another 1/4 inch. Has anyone experienced this before? I'd hate to start cutting more holes in the shroud. Any :1zhelp: would be appreciated!

Ok, let me put it another way. For you guys and gals with a 20 inch standard radiator...what is the measurement from the passenger side edge of the rad to the top hose inlet? Maybe the rad I have is not the correct one???:1zhelp:

All righty then...I guess whatever the measurements are the fact is that the shroud doesn't fit. So out it comes and it gets RMA'ed...or ebay!
