Before You Begin: 4 Things To Do

The Dirty Work
The best advice I can pass on is to work your way from the front to the back; starting with the radiator, pulley system, and so on. To give me the most room possible, I removed the hood and set it safely out of the way. The radiator has delicate fins that can be damaged easily so I wanted it stashed in a safe spot as well. To prevent rounding off the tranny line fittings, I purchased a set of line wrenches. You can use a regular end wrench, but if it slips you'll have to turn to the vise grips and that can really mess up the fitting.
