The water pumps set low on the engine, but that doesn't mean you need electric fans. Here is my 250 in a '37, you can see how much lower the radiator is mounted. It should have the filler cap sticking out of the upper piece of the grill shell. Second picture shows the shroud I built when I installed A/C, the fan blades go down past the core. I installed the biggest fan I could, 17" if I remember right, I didn't have room between the engine and radiator core for a clutch fan or steel bladed fan, both of which would have been a better choice. It could stand for more air flow at idle.
' This is some great information. I haven't mounted my radiator as yet but was wondering about the fan. A friend for mine had a flex fan go thought the hood of his 57' Belair, just ruined it, I have been against using one since. I had thought about a 5 blade fan but hadn't considered using a fan clutch, that does make a lot of sense. I don't believe I'll have any real issues with placement, the Task Force series had plenty of room.
