Default need a measurement

I need to find out the distance between the front of the waterpump pulley and radiator from someone who is using the explorer fead. Right now I have about 4.5-5". Tring to fit a stock explorer clutch fan assembly in there, I am using an sn95 mustang fead. Really do not want to use an electric fan if I do not need to. Using a northern radiator

using air conditioning too?


cut the core out and run a summit unit...or move the norther forward...



these are pretty good https://www.summitracing.com/parts/a...xoCg88QAvD_BwE


depending on how you mounted it...body lift ect...should be able to easily get 7 inches of clearance in a gen 1.

Thinking the pusher is not the best at cooling.

I have a 3" body lift and cut the core out to move the Explorer radiator forward a couple inches but still get the cap on and off with no problem. I also use the Explorer FEAD and for a couple years used the stock fan with no clearance issues. I changed to the Volvo electric and the additional clearance is nice to have--and the electric works just fine even in 100 degree Texas summers. I am not running A/C. My engine is sitting on the flat motor mount plates on the stock V6 mounts and my transmission lined up within a half inch of the stock mounts. That helped to get maximum clearance up front.
