No, v6 Ford contour fans, shroud is the perfect size for the fj60 radiator.@
I've been through your posts but don't recall now - do you use the Taurus fans or which?
I have all of 2 1/4" from the nose of the waterpump to the radiator core
My Ranger shifter is on a bracket off the tranny, it comes up next to the 4-speed shifter and uses a rod to actuate the Ranger.
If I did it over, I would move the motor back, probably by going with an NV4500 rather than the Ranger/h42
