64-66 V8 fan size?

Hey guys just in the process of breaking in my rebuilt 1968 327. Breaking in the cam today based on instructions from engine rebuilder, keep it at 2000-3000rpm’s for 15 minutes.

About 10 minutes in I noticed the engine was getting warm so shut it down.

I was running it with a stock fixed 19” fan, no shroud. I have a stock 64-66 V8 shroud but the 19” fan hits. Did these trucks come from the factory with an 18” fan?

Thanks.

How many blades? Which fan? Where did you get it? Have a link? A pic?

I got it off the local VarageSale for $5. Guy had a bunch of old sbc parts that I gladly took for similar prices.

It’s a 4 blade, 17 5/8” diameter, fits nice with the stock shroud. The 19” I took the time to clean and paint is next to it.
