I have red grease pencil markings on the underside of my hood on my 69 GT350 #0353.  The previous owner told me the mechanics used to write the mileage of when the next oil change was due

I just want to make sure I have the right fan on my car.   Does anyone know the correct fan part number for a 69 GT 350 with Air Conditioning?  Iím not sure but this might be part of my cooling issue.

Thanks Dan

Get well Jim

The only deviation from stock on my car is a Edelbrock performer cam, Aluminium radiator,  K&N air filter. The engine was bored .040 over it has stock heads, pulleys and fan  its a close ratio 4speed also Iím running a Gear Vendor over drive and a 325 rear gear the cooling problem is at idle and low speeds.

   The stock looking radiators  I have a ACP radiator I know Griffin has one that looks almost exactly like the ACP Iím not sure who else makes them.

I have received a lot of good information here and I really appreciate it.  now itís time tip put it to use.   Thank you everyone

Thank you everyone for the information. Iím running the stock 5 blade flex fan.  I wonder if I have the wrong spacer for the fan.  I will also check the timing.  Iíve been given a lot of good suggestions Iíll try them hope fully one will work thank you again

Bob itís been going on since I have owned the car  bought it in 97 the engine was rebuilt and bored over .040 around that time.  Iíve been driving it a lot more these past years to where itís becoming more of a problem.  Iím getting sick of having to pull over in stop and go traffic to let it cool down.   It seems to me the fan is too far in the shroud.  I have a clutch and fan assembly a buddy gave me years ago from a 68 GT350 I wanted to try it to see if it improve my cooling but I wasnít sure if it would work. The measurements I took of the clutch assy would put the fan about 2/3ís in the shroud.  Just trying to save some money with all that has been going on lately

Thank you for the advice. Iíve been chasing this problem for a while I already have a high volume water pump and  high flow thermostat (160 Deg) installed in the car the radiator is an aluminum 3 row 24 inch that I installed last year. This seem to be an air flow problem at idle and low speeds. The temp gauge only goes a 1/4 of the way when driving on the highway but you can watch it climb when at a long stop light or driving in traffic under 25 MPH.  I try the rust 911 maybe there is a restriction in the block.

Thanks Dan

Thanks for the info everyone. Yes my radiator cap is good was thinking of trying a higher pressure cap.    If the 68 GT 350 clutch fan will give the same results as I have now the only choice is to try to put an auxiliary electric fan between the condenser and the radiator.  The auxiliary electric fans that will fit in that area are only rated at 1000 CFM not much air flow.  Anyone have a better solution was trying to keep it looking period correct and not have to use an electric fan.

Thanks Dan

On my 69GT350 Iím having cooling problems at idle and low speeds the temperature at a light or in traffic heats up to the point of almost overheating. My car has a/c  and a three row radiator in it.  Does anyone know is a clutch fan set up from a 68 GT350 will work on a 69 Gt350?

   Thank Dan
