Fan spacer

I have a fan spacer that has the Ford # C8DE-A. Does anyone know what it fits? It's 1 5/8ths tall. Thanks for any help.

It was designed for the 1968 model year so it probably fits just about every Ford car and truck that had a water pump mounted fan. Ford was fairly consistent in using water pumps with 5/8" "nubs" and the same bolt pattern.
I have a few factory Ford fan spacers of various lengths. The whole purpose of the different lengths is to get the fan close to the radiator.

If your knuckles aren't bleeding after a fan installation, then you didn't get it close enough to the radiator.

PS. .....or maybe you're just smart and use some thin cardboard taped to the fins to keep them from slicing your knuckles like a veg-a-matic.
