Nice rig!

Loosen the hose clamps and hoses.  Undo the fasteners for the front support rods between the rad. and the cowl.  Also loosen slightly the front hood hinge/strip bracket.  Close the hood but don't latch.  Remove the two large radiator nuts under the front crossmember.  Pull the top of the rad. forward to allow the center hood strip to slide out of the bracket.

With assistance, remove the hood and with some more help and a selection of cuss words, the radiator comes out as an assembly.  Removing the fasteners from between the radiator flange and grill will separate everything.

Probably want to remove the fan as well to keep any unplanned contact to a minimum. And while the radiator is out its a good time to redo the water pump as well since it is so much easier to access.

You will also need to disconnect the cooling lines that run to the pump that are used to cool the radiator while pumping. If you are not planning on pumping it I'd disconnect them and leave them disconnected so you do not have a freezing problem with the lines as they contain raw water, not anti-freeze.

I have the fan belt number if you want to replace that as well.

Thanks for all the help, I would like to change the fan belts (2) as they are rather loose, so if you could send me the numbers I would appreciate it.  Thanks again  Wally
