Sucking fans are more efficient than pusher fans; since 292's and their brothers are longer than 235's, etc., in Chevy's, ( GMC do not have this problem) it would be a good idea to move the radiator forward slightly in the core support to be able to use an original fan, give more room for accessories. For additional heat capacity, use a fan shroud, with a rolled edge around the fan, fan blades should be centered in shroud. Holes in shroud should have flaps of some heavy material to open when road air pushes them open-see-VW Rabbit, etc.
Neoprene mount material is readily available in 1" thick by 4" wide by length as snowplow blade material; Florida residents will have to look elsewhere.
