It will need to be modified to match the 318 fan. The PW engine sets 2 inches off center to the right and the 318 doesn't. Once you install the pump and fan and with the radiator out, install the radiator bracket, then place the shroud between fan and bracket to see where and how much to cut, to match the fan. I’ve done some preliminary measures on the Chevy engine, and I’ll need to cut about 3.5 inches off the bottom and add that to the top and shift the fan port to the left, and forward at an angle to match the engine angle of the fan. I picked up a used PW shroud that I will be using to cut up and weld to make the new shroud. The engine brackets were challenging, and the shroud will be also, but I can do it and you can too, it will be worth it. LOL :=)
