Radiator Removal - 98 Endeavor

Has anyone removed the radiator from a 1998 HR Endeavor ? Looking for guidance and any tips you wise men might have.

radiator removal

If you decide to do this, and I would advise not to, unless- you are a proficient mechanic.
I just removed the inter-cooler(CAC) and it was a b---- of a job.
The radiator is a heavy sucker and comes out with the inter-cooler and it possibly has the hydraulic cooler welded to it and draining that is 4 gal of trans fluid. In the radiator is a transmission cooler and disconnecting it means trans fluid removal.
If you read this far and it doesn't seem to bother you- I'll post more.

Skip I am surprised that you had so much trouble, the removal on our 2000 dyn was not that bad, on the 98 Endeavor he wont have a hyd cooler only have a trans cooler in the engine coolant radiator and if I was him I would test the CAC before I had the radiator removed to be sure there is no leak in it. The removal on a rear Radiator coach will be a lot harder than the side radiator coaches, I had a 99 dip but it was a Roadmaster chassis and the 98 Endevor is a Freightliner chassis so the radiator set up would be different.

Yes Walt,
Mine was a SOB. I had remove the large side bolts that hold the radiator assy up and block up the whole assy and pull back the top and bottom to get enough clearance to get the CAC out. Not a picnic.
It was the hardest job I done on this MH and I've done a lot to it.
Of course I had no help. I got it crated up and off to FleetAir.

Chonb..

Sounds like we should stick together with our Endeavors. Thanks for replying to my post concerning an Endeavor operating manual.

Then I saw this post so I went up to accessfreightliner and downloaded a 98 radiator removal and replacement file. Looks like it covers both removal and installation including parts and torque values.

So I posted my e-mail on the other thread and by PM. So when you send me the operator manual I will have your address and will send you this radiatior file back.

Keep in touch.
