Removing 58 Pontiac Radiator

Kategori: 58 WORKING TIPS

Removing The Radiator on the 58 Pontiac could be trouble due to all
inlets in the radiator and how al tubes and hooses are atached.

1: Hoses- 3 hoses are attached to radiator the 2 large ones for engine cooling
and 1 smaller for heater media attached to lower tank.
One of the big ones is also attached to lower tank, this could be tuff to take of
sometimes. Warm up the metal tube where the hoses are clamped on with a
warm heater gun the heat kind of move over to the hose then it is much easier
to remove them.

2: Tubes- 2 metal tubes are attached for transmission cooling in lower tank.
Those ones cold be real trouble. Its hard to get real clearance for the tools and
if tubes are rusty they could get stuck in the nut where they should rotate in and
twist of.

So the best trick is to loose the sway linkage and move it close to engine then
you got a good clearance for the tools. (hang it on the front bar of the frame)
Brush away dirt from tubes put some ww40 on tube for a couple of minutes.
If rusty warm it up a bit with the heat gun and put on the ww40.

From under the car put on the 3/4 wrench on the nut closest to cooler then
put on the 5/8 on the tube nut get a very good grip and make a fast steady
movement this to make it close to how an air hammer works.

Its also easier to work on the cooler taking of the upper shroud.

Att ta bort kylaren kan var trixigt då slangar och automatkylar rören kan sitta
fast. Värm upp rören där slangarna sitter så mjuknar slangarna och dom blir
lättare att ta av.
Värst kan vara metallrören till lådan. Om man lossar krängningshämmaren så
kan man lägga den på främre rambalken mot motorn då får man bättre plats att
komma åt. Ta 3/4 nyckeln och ta tag om muttern till röret närmast kylaren
ta 5/8 nyckeln och få ett bra grepp om muttern runt röret och knyck till.
Om man segdrar är det lätt att man skadar muttrarna.

Förbered med att ta lite WW40 eller annan  rostlösning på röret så att
hylsmuttern lätt kan snurra på röret. Om det är rostigt värm gärna upp röret
lite innan du tar på rostlösningen.

Det kan oxå vara lättare att jobba på kylaren om man tar av övre kylarramen.
