I'm getting closer to dropping my Amc 401 into my CJ7 and need to know how much room there will be between the front of the waterpump, and the core support? I've been in contact with Ron Davis radiators and want the absolute biggest damn one i can get in there. Any measurements or experience would be great!

I can measure mine. You running an electric fan of mechanical? Do you want the water pump fan flange to the rad distance or the fan to rad? Both?

My biggest PIA is the fan, I had a 7 blade OEM and one blade cracked off. I cannot find another to replace it. So I have a flex-a-lite, it doesn't work as well. You definitely want the OEM shroud and vent holes in the hood.
