The Impossible Nut
At the lower left corner of my radiator fan shroud, is (was) a hose support bracket/hangar. It supports the large hydraulic hose, running from the fan itself, around to the hyrdaulic cooler, in front of the radiator.
The cheap bracket broke, from vibrations. I have a new stainless steel bracket to install, but woe is me. The bolt that holds the bracket on has a nut on the inside of the fan shroud. I cannot reach that nut in any fashion. The radiator fan prohibits me from reaching behind the shroud far enough to get to the nut. The only alternative I see is to remove the fan, which I do not intend to do.
Has anyone replaced that bracket or can offer suggestions as to how to get to the nut so I can remove and replace the bolt?
