How mutch space is there between the radiator and fan it seams to be very close don’t want to loose a radiator.
On our ’36 Eight, there is minimal clearance, ~1/2″ or less, between the fan blade and radiator.
Your Twelve may have a similar tight clearance; a quick phone call to Ed Minnie (in the roster) will confirm this – he has a ’36 Twelve.
Any new photos to post of your work-in-progress?
