Re: Fan Shroud Options
I've had 4 sets of radiator fan shrouds that all eventually crack and fall apart due to the heating and reheating of the thin fiberglass shroud and become brittle with age.
I still have two upper sections of the shroud, the bottom edge usually breaks first, then it splits in half at the top of the fan arc or near it.
I will eventually pattern a replacement new hand made fiberglass shroud.
Last summer, I ran without my fan shroud, custom core radiator worked out on my 1970 J-3000 Gladiator.
A friend from the CA_FSJA on yahoogroups hand built his shroud 2 years ago.
