RE: [DML] Radiator install questions



Tom,
 
I did this replacement (radiator only, not the fans) recently on my car, on ramps as you are. I unbolted the fans and condensor and left them in place, supported with sash cord. I removed the plastic duct/surround, which required a bit of bending but came out (and went back in) OK. Disconnected the support brackets at the frame, and reprimed and painted them while I had them out, as they were showing a bit of rust. I also ended up pulling out the wire mesh grille from the front to get access to some of the nuts, and cleaned, reprimed, and painted that while I had it out.When it came time to reinstall radiator, I left in place the protective cardboard sheets that were taped to the radiator when I got it from Grady, then pulled them out after radiator was in place. And to state the obvious, I replaced every hose I could at the same time. Everything came apart and went back together fairly easily, tho as you say the nuts on the top were a bit of a reach.
