Alright, here's my issue. Maybe y'all can chime in with some suggestions.

This would have been the lower mounts but I had to narrow it to fit.
My idea was to use these rubber bumpers but barely have room for the stud to point up (cutting it down quite a bit).

Plan B, was to have the stud go through the bottom and grind it down a bit.

What do you all think ???

BTW it's a walker model A for Chevy engine radiator.

I would rather mount it solid to the radiator strap/suround(?) If room allowed, (bolt up) close to 1/4" clearance should be fine. Leave just enough bolt to get it above the nylock nut. Make sure put some locktite thread locker on also. Down fall there is nut back off and rub a hole in tank, (but slim chance)

Mounting it bolt down would probably be fine, but I always worry about rubbing a hole in bottom of bracket from dancing around. Again probably unlikey.

That illustration is very PICASOESQUE...........to the right one seems better choice of mounting.

Well, the car is back together (minus hood) and managed to warm it up but.... couldn't get the fan to run.
No power to the (Gray) electric fan wire. Checking the fuse box and that was good.
Walked away after that.  >:(

Using a relay? If so, no power until the relay is grounded via temperature sending (or manual switch).

Speedway said I need to check behind the fuse box for the no power issue and I'll have to wire up a relay.
For some reason I thought it had a relay already wired in the kit but I guess not.

Words cannot describe how much I hate relays. The car is grounded for a month OR at least until I feel like working on it.  >:(

Here is a basic single speed fan set up...ignore the indicator light and toggle switch wiring (unless you want them)

Was able to check it out tonight. There's power at the fuse box and...... I was pretty sure it was already wired with a relay (correct me if im wrong)
. Just no power at the end of the fan wire.
OK im stumped. Here's some pics.
(Upper right I had the relay pulled)
