This has been bothering me for some time now. When I first got the car together I had some overheating issues, nothing major it hit 200 a few times. When I'd get it out on the road it'd cool right down, I have a 180 Thermostat. I finally figured out that the Fan was not "in" the Shroud far enough (ie: half way). I added a 1 1/2 in. spacer and have had no issue since. When I put the car together I used all original or correct parts, so what has been bothering me is WHY did I need that extra 1 1/2 in.? The other night the thought came to me, that maybe the Engine Frame mounts got switched side to side. Is this possible? Has anyone run into this? As I remember there was no issue with the bolt holes lining up. AND, if that did happen, would the Trans. Crossmember still line up with no issue? As I said the car is running fine now with no issues, this just "bugs" me that I needed that spacer. Any ideas are appreciated. I'm a little OCD and I just want it right. My wife bought me a T-shirt for Christmas says; I have OCD and ADD, so everything has to be perfect, but only for a little while. Fits!!! Thanks!
