Today I noticed that my fan shroud is pulled away from the radiator towards the bottom on both sides. The gap begins about half way down on both sides and spreads to about one eighth of an inch at the bottom.
I see where the shroud attaches to the top portion of the radiator but not anywhere else.
Can anyone describe how and where the shroud attaches toward the bottom of the radiator?
Thanks in advance.

Did the radiator in my '78 last winter. 2 metal clips slip onto the radiator mount and the shroud just slips down into them. Don't know what they call them. Kinda like a flatened "S" clip made of that hardened spring steel. Mine are about 3" or so in from each end. Just went out and looked and mine fits tight at the bottom but the way the shroud is made, it is open a little along the sides. Maybe the clips rusted out, not much to them.
