Unfortunately, I am writing this with a new radiator waiting for me to install. The last one I had, which was perfectly fine, was punctured by my passenger side electric fan somehow while driving. I have absolutely NO CLUE as to how something like that happens, but I have the worst luck, so it happened to me. Yes, my electric fans were bolted up as tight as could be. It is also worth mentioning I have an aftermarket fan motor and both fans are wired directly. My driver's side fan is a perfect distance away from the radiator (original fan motor), however, the passenger side bolts up extremely close. I'd say about 3/4 of an inch at best. It is probably just as close or closer than it was on my last radiator that was damaged and if I were to leave it as is, I know it's going to cost me another radiator and another headache. Is there a way to adjust the electric fan out a bit more or is it somehow the fan motor causing it to sit closer? I know this may be a confusing question I am asking here, but I guess I have to ask a confusing question for a confusing situation.
