Yes oh great galaxie gurus...is a clutch fan difficult to put in a 352??? I understand that the State Patrol use these clutch fans in their pursuit cars kinda like an afterburner kicking in when they stomp on it...Marla

You would need a shroud and a fan from a model with AC, the clutch is a common item from the parts store.

The problem on the '65 352 is it has that skinny balancer that has the watwer pump pulley running off of the outer ring of the balancer, the outer power steering pulley is bolted to the hub on the balancer. The ring can seperate and allow the water pump to stop pumping. You need to switch to a later style balancer that has both pulleys running off of the hub.

Plastic reproduction shrouds (the originals are metal) are available from Dearborn Classics for about $100 The fan and spacer will need to be found, I have a six-blade fan clutch, steel shroud, and a 3 core radiator to go in mine when I get the time. Watch ebay, they come up once in awhile.

Hope this helps.
