Door taken of for sandblasting and painting before putting back for finsh
painting. I am not gone take of door hinges course door is fit to sit right already
and hinges are painted at place and it saves a lot of work when reinstalls doors.
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
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.
