    Long Water Pump with Clutch Fan

    Are any of you using a clutch fan setup with a long water pump in a small block 55? If so, what setup do you have please? Bo

    Why do you want to use a LWP.

    Serpentine pulley set up is requiring a long pump and thatís whatís on it already.

    Another question if I may?. How far from your radiators are your fans no matter what water pumps you are using?

    I have went with a Hayden 2747 fan clutch, Derale 17117 6 blade fan, and an Ecklers 18-307 aluminun fan shroud. By my measurements I should be about 2 inches from my radiator with the fan/clutch. I will post how this goes later when installed.

    yes the water pump turns backwards on factory set ups. Not sure about aftermarket set ups.

    I always believed that ideally the fan shroud dictated how far from the radiator the fan should be. I think the fan being half in/ half out of the shroud is about ideal
