On the top and bottom, the radiator has strips of metal that run the length of the core along the outer edges. I decided to make a raised area at the bottom of the radiator mount that these strips could slide over, holding it in position. Two pieces of 1-inch square tubing welded together fit perfectly.

|A little more paint, and more rubber insulation to come.|
I mounted the fan as a pusher--the top bracket prevents me from centering it but, fingers-crossed, it will do the trick (a Studebaker Drivers Club forum member reported using the same fan and radiator with no problems. )
