Might be a bit late but the radiator comes up through the top with the main fan connected.
No magic to it at all.

I'm about to have to do the same job. Rock Auto shows 3 different radiators ranging from $175 to $475(!). Anyone know what all is really needed? Rough time estimate for first time repair for someone reasonably mechanically inclined (I got through valve cover replacement and oil cooler with pics posted here)?

I have a small crack in the top plastic that is leaking and slowly growing. I want to get things replaced before it blows on me and from reading other places, people say to not even attempt a patch on the plastic.
