General. The radiator assembly is mounted
on the front of the engine. As the water flows through
the radiator core, it is cooled by air forced through the
core by a belt driven fan. A guard is attached to the fan
shroud to prevent loose clothing, hands, and other ob-
jects from becoming entangled in the fan blades.
Removal and Disassembly
(2) Drain the radiator.
(3) Remove the hoods, side panels, and
tie rods (Operator's Manual).
(4) Remove and disassemble the radiator
assembly in the numerical sequence as illustrated on
