I'm trying to replace the stock fan with a welded fan. I have
removed what appears to be all the bolts even the bolts holding
dowwn the alternator stand and still can't get enough room to lift
the alternator out of the fan housing(doghouse)Do i need to remove
the doghouse to lift the alternator out to replace the fan???
Please any ideas appreciated. The engine is a 2109cc dual carbs

Thanks
Derek

I had to do this last weekend on my car, forgot what a PITA it is.

My solution was elegant, and simple. :-)

I removed the studs that held the stand in place, it all easily came out without disrupting the fan shroud and it's related components (flaps, thermostat, etc), and it's a biatch to put together again in place.

After shimming my fan, I reassembled with allen bolts (stainless, of course) which meant I didn't have to go above and down onto them during assembly. It was cake, and something I'll be doing to EVERY engine I assemble from now on, it saved that much headache.
