This fan should work fine with a quality Hayden fan clutch. My concern is Ames states the fan is 18" and you mention the shroud is 17.5". My understanding is that the center of the fan blades should be aligned with the edge of the shroud. If I'm correct, you may have clearance problems.I have found the Ames tech folks to be very knowledgeable about their stuff. I would check with them about the compatibility of the fan and shroud.
I sympathize with your problems as my '68 has a cheap flex fan from previous owners and I need to change it to a clutch fan and un-do stuff that was modified. Best of luck to you.
