adding lots of parts

here is my photo blog of today.

tear down the radiator, air charge cooler, get ready to replace alternator, fanclutch and eventually the transmission.



got the radiators out



took the fan off



and then got everything kinda cleaned up




oh yeah, here is that AT1545 transmission going in soon too.

Wow! That tranny crate looks to be $200 bucks worth by itself!

i may have reassembled it wrong. laying on top of the valves is a different view. chances are i screwed up.

oh, and i'm pretty sure that dent in the trans pan was from my cheater bar. it tore an air hose too. i still have the ratchet, but the cheater is nowhere to be found.

I was trying to find diagrams online of that engine.. of course since the 5.9 was used in dodge trucks all I find online are diagrams of dodge trucks.. and they have the tensioner off to the side..

that cheater bar could have run itself through the belt partially causing your damage...

Durf, if you look at Nat's, and then look back at yours... It looks like you can see where yours used to be mounted lower down on the bracket like Nat's is.

radiator and Charge air are off to the radiator shop for cleaning and coring.


oh, i and suppose if i look at the tensioner, i can see where it used to be from the grease leaving a clean spot.

Well, I believe the belt issue just got solved.

I usually remove the front bumper and then pull the intercooler/radiator out as one complete assembly.
