Hello,

I'm looking for a fan shroud to fit my 260z. Radiator is stock replacement, and fan is the 8 blade stocker as well.

Does anyone have an extra?

The dimensions all say it will, and holding it above the fan and visually inspecting it appears good. I think it's a winner.

Never updated this.

Shroud fits and works perfectly. All is well.

You're incredibly blessed to have got the right one on the first try! :lol:

They changed so much over the years it was really difficult to find one which matched up the screw holes along the radiator support, had the hole aligned at the right height for the fan itself, and matched the radiator in the car. We don't tend to think about it, but the Z car radiators evolved over the years so the shrouds did, too. Some radiators are longer than others (stick down lower in front) and if you change out the original for an after market radiator (very popular swap) you make it all the more difficult to find a shroud which actually fits your particular car. Gawd help you if you put a V8 in there and look for a shroud to fit everything!

I was definitely lucky to find out so quickly.

I confirmed all of the dimensions with the PO prior to buying it though. I'm 8)
