Radiator Replacement

Just thought I'd let you guys know the level of difficulty for this job. I never had to replace one before but it is really simple. If you're ever in the position where you're wondering if you should tackle the job yourself, go for it. There really isn't much holding it in there and it can be removed in less than an hour. Just have something handy to catch the oil that spills out of the engine and tranny lines. One suggestion, replace the stock hose clamps with the metal screw/belt type since they are easier to take on and off.

This is easier than spark plugs or the water pump.

I agree, the hardest part of the job is draining it and getting the tranny cooler lines off.. Don't forget the cooling supplement..

Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life.

On mine, the hardest part was separating the condensor from the rad. It kind of rides piggyback on the radiator and took some manipulation to get it free.

I always slit the rad hoses lengthwise where they connect to the rad and peel them off rather than pulling. Helps prevent putting stress on the radiator. Puts me out the cost of a hose, but oh well....

FWIW.
