550 Radiator

Post by Martym8 » Sun Sep 08, 2019 6:53 pm

Can you remove the radiator on a 1978 550 without taking the sheet metal all the way off and just tilt it forward. The trans cooler is leaking water into the hydraulic fluid for the trans.

I don't know for certain, but I think you have to pull the nose off. The manual for my 450E says to pull the nose and I don't see that it will pivot. Looking at the parts catalog I think the 550 sheet metal is similar to the 450E, the nose has tabs that extend inside the frame rail channels which would prevent tilting forward. Do you have the Technical manual for your 550? It should tell you. Hope someone comes along whos says it can tilt, but it doesn't look good to me.
