Nothing to it. Hard part will be dealing with the fan. Take your time and you will be fine.

Blew out as in over pressured / blew a side tank off? If so that is a sign of a failing head gasket or head between a cylinder / cooling system.

If it started to leak from between the side tank / header, that could be old age.

It did blow a side tank, however as a side note, the fan was jammed up against the radiator, a guess a weak prior I had curbed the car and pushed the radiator back into the fan.
