Shouldnt be too hard, my fan sits infront of the rad.
There is more space this way, cos the manifold does sit a bit close.

in a standard postion the fan fits between the manifold and rad as youd expect, to allow more room you could moun the fan the other side of the rad between the crash bar and the rad

loads of places sell kenlow fans, ill find a addy in a min

somewhere the original connecter will be in you engine that plugs into the fan motor, it would be of great help if its there and not been cut off etc etc

unless you got another fan
