Shrouds have to help, no doubt about it, but my 235 in my '59 I run a 160
Tstat and no shroud, stock radiator and fan. My temps have never gotten over
about 170-180 (judging by my best "guesstimate" from the stock gauge) when
loaded and pulling hills in 100+degree heat.
Now I might just be the "lucky one" of the group, not sure.
