Those are exactly the steps I went through Gilly, EXCEPT the fan bolt (I give up , for now). I managed to loosen the 1 bolt that's behind the fan pulley enough to move the tensioner bracket out the way. Larry , I needed to replace my tensioner and shock absorber also , but without that Snap-on tool it would be impossible to do without at least pivoting the P.S. pump out of the way.I finally got it back on the road tonight , after about 6 hours in the evenings this week. I figure the only way that fan bolt will come out is if I pull the rad (again),condensor and auxillary fan and drill the bolt out , then use an easy-out .I think I may have bent it a tad with all my efforts , so a new fan assembly is probably in my future.Thanks for all the response , it's very appreciated .
