RunningTooHot: Very articulate reply. Buying a shroud today. The chunk is about 25% of the bottom of the shroud. Apparently a "mechanic" cut it out instead of removing the fan bolt. That bolt is a pain in the butt, so I sort-of understand.
ETSA, Mike: Thanks for your thoughts as well. I have ordered the mount as well.
I was also pleasantly surprised to use the new FastLane and see that the little nit-picky parts are CHEAP! The o-ring to replace the dried out one on my oil dipstick was only 11 cents, and thoe oil filler cap was $3.50!
