First off, thanks for yalls replys and tips. i would have responded sooner but I dont have access to a computer 24/7. Im gonna get started on this as soon as I finish my coffee and steal my dads car to run off to autozone and pick up a new rad. Boosty, as far as you changin a radiator in 9 minutes...that seems a little quick but I have no doubts you can probably do it. Some of the things Ive read from you and other people about you say you are quite the mechanic and gear head. This project of mine Im thinkin is gonna take about 45 minutes as Im not quite as mechanically inclined as most of yall but it beats the hell outta going to a shop and letting them take me for a ride as far as my wallet goes.
Motorhead, thanks for the tip about the plugs on the new radiator to plug up the old one. I would never have opened the box to the new radiator before I started except to measure the legnth and to make sure it had the transmission cooler. That tip was probably the best one of all.
Thanks everyone! Ill time myself and compare it to Boosty'* and see how much more I need to improve on my mechanic skills. Ill let yall know how it turns out.
