1) Shroud only came with the 300 if it was ordered with xtra cooling or factory A/C, in either case prolly has a bigger (different) radiator.
2) Shroud bolts to the same support as the radiator.
3) Radiator is the complete unit and the core is only the actual cooling element in the radiator.

Who's the Dummy here. LOL

Thanks
The core support is what the radiator is bolted to, that spans the width of the truck.

The fan shroud on my 1985 Ford F150 attaches to the radiator. And it's all stock.

I noticed in the shade, or overcast days, it looks more of an orange, or off orange, but then in the sun it more of the brown stands out. I was looking for more of an orange truck when I was looking, but now after having this, I think I like it better.

I also have a factory METAL shroud that attaches directly to the radiator, pulled from a 70s F500.

I am, as I was going by my '65 F100 when I said the fan shroud only bolts to the core support.

Everyone makes mistakes, but...the way y'all are reacting, you'd think I committed murder.

Think about this: Who else here on FTE makes the effort to look up and then search for obsolete parts for y'all?

Hey NumberDummy, I am sorry everyone is jumping on you over this. It was a simple, honest mistake. No one was killed, maimed, or injured so the rest of you need to backoff unless of course you have NEVER made a mistake in your life.

Yeah....sorry NumberDummy. I was just ribbing you a little bit.

Yes, you have helped me personally in the past with some part numbers, and was even so kind as to include a long list of the nearest dealers and phone numbers were I might can find them. And, thanks to NumberDummy, I got some hard to find NEW Old Stock genuine Ford pieces to get my 1985 F150 project closer to being completed!

I know how confusing and time-consuming the Ford part number system must be. I always enjoy reading your responses as to the CORRECT "Ford" way of doing things.

You are a true asset to this forum!

Here's to you, NumberDummy!

Hey, thanks for the paint code information. I didn't know they used the same paint on so many different vehicles.

Also, I never heard you guarantee your information as 100% accurate, but if we were at the parts counter, it would have made for a fun conversation!

When I first joined this forum I thought NumberDummy was an automated program run by the website, because the information was always so quickly posted, specific & accurate. Then I saw some him give some quick, specific, accurate general advice & realized that's one dedicated dude.

The aftermarket electric fan I just pulled used two metal rails which bolted to holes drilled in the radiator mounting flanges, and suspended the fan motor in a ring between them. It's a pretty good design, I'm going to make something similar for the new fan/shroud assembly by bending cheap aluminum stock to match the existing bolt holes. This also creates a nice support to attach my own shroud extension without having to drill into anything else.

Bill, when I posted the statement "who's the dummy now" the intention was to take your name and use it to call myself a dummy, absolutely no intentional disrespect was intended toward you on my part. I don't know Jack Schit about these trucks other than the limited experience I have from working on the few I have owned. That's why I keep asking so many questions which I look forward to the answers.

Respects,
TC

ND, your reputation speaks for itself. A lot of guys here, including me, sorta see you as a father figure on this forum.

When I was in my teens, my dad won every game of pool we played. Then, one night he was showing off and tried a trick shot that missed. I cleaned up the table, and you would have thought I'd won the lottery! I didn't let him forget it for a long time, and while I'm sure part of him was ticked about that, at the same time I think he understood.

There's just something about being able to best your old man at something...if only just for a moment.
