One blade gone and green liq from a gash on the rt botom of the radiator core. Motor & trans mnts are new with the stop on the rt set per book??? Thought this happens on hard braking not Hard accel??? WTF

Is your driver side motor mount, that comes off the subframe next to the steering box, solid...not cracked?

checked. Chances are you have only one or a few holes, and those can be patched up. Get a new fan. Check the water pump shaft for looseness. Not sure what caused the hit, but it seems related to the driveshaft R&R, so maybe the engine/trans got moved forward in that process.

Thanks Curtis, You've got mail. Its time to upgrade to a 3 row on my 75. 1 more question. How does the efficiency of the 75/76 radiators with shroud and smaller fans compare with the earlier set up?

The US 75-76 cars have a smaller fan (360 vs. 400 mm), a fan shroud, and different pulleys such that the fan and water pump spin faster. Those changes together improve cooling but also increase noise. I don't know the effect of the smaller fan with shroud vs. larger fan without shroud.
