It appears a previous owner installed a larger fan in an attempt to make up for the missing shroud. Not what I would have done. A shroud is my preferred installation but it requires the fan blade to be properly located within it. Approx 1/2 in, 1/2 out is correct.

If you are going to work on the car, I strongly recommend you acquire the shop manual and the assembly manual. They are great soures of reliable information.

In general it should look something like the attached pic of my '63. It shows a std 4 blade fan. The 5 blade clutched fan install is different but the placement of the blade in the shroud is the same.

Hope this is helpful.
