Honestly, I am not even sure what the total problem is. I just know what another user went through and what he ended up doing in the end. For him he was saying that the factory 4bt and the Gates ones are between 1-2 inches off as well as hang to the drivers side too much to be usable. He started off using electric fans but on his engine it wasn't keeping up with the heat. I live in South Louisiana so it definitely gets hot here.Is your main issue on the fan the distance from the radiator?
