A few more things to check is the water pump. If bearing is worn and there is any wobble present, that may be causing interference. You only have so much you can do with the radiator as far as proper fit and height with pads. Rad neck needs to allow proper cap fit as well. I had an aftermarket rad that caused the cap to scrape on the hood as it was too short. Check water pump, rebuild if needed -there are kits at JUST8Ns.Also, did you try the OEM shroud with the new rad?
