The fan spacers are different on the two cars. Cars that originally had the air injection emission system (all 68-70 USA cars and some Canadian cars) came with a fan clutch and 7-blade fan. This was designed to try to bring the engine temperatures down during situations of extreme heat due to the distributor that had to be installed on the engines to meet the smog idle test. Locking up the 7-blade fan permanently was a large power drag and would make a car sound like a hurricane so a fan clutch was designed. The percentage of 1968-70 fan clutches that failed was tremendous, and Nissan came out with a solid block to replace it. The clutch was a good idea, it just seemed to fail when you needed it the most! The original clutch was also an unbalanced blob hanging on the end of the water pump shaft which is not conducive to long water pump life.

When this was changed a 4 blade fan was to be installed. You can still use your 7-blade fan if you don't mind the drag or the hurricane noise.

Your spacer should be a solid balanced block, some mechanics simply jammed a big bolt in the fan mechanism to lock it. Unless you want to replace water pumps or help the fan wobble off the pump into the radiator this is not a good idea. If you hand turn your engine over (dist cap off, spark plugs out is easiest, or pull dist cap and plugs, put car in 4th-5th and push car on flat floor) you can usually identify the original fan clutch. It will have a hole in its side that will be visible without removing the fan.

All the 67 2000's and non USA non smog cars came with the fan block on the left, with a 4 blade fan that had a different center hole diameter (1 1/4" versus 1 1/2") If you are missing these parts on your 67 2000 you will usually need to use both the later block and the later fan as the original 67 block has become a museum piece, now only manufactured out of unobtainium.

The round fan block is available to fit a fan with a 1 1/2" hole (part #210-06) or a 1 1/4" hole (part # 210-43).

NOTE: Bolts are different depending on fan. The original 7 blade fan with the metal center when used with the 210-06 spacer takes the 081-05 bolt. The all plastic fans 210-04 and 210-13 when used with the 210-06 or 210-43 spacer take the 081-28 bolt.

Be sure to check the USED COOLING page sometimes we have used blocks; even the 67.5 original style.
