You might try reducing the angle of the wedge. I tapped it in with a hammer.

Yep, I had to make mine pretty acute to get it to wedge in there far enough to stop the pulleys.

I used the write-up from The Bac. It was a lot of help. One thing I would add, is if you have the ZF6 Transmission, you don't need to lock the fly wheel. I just chocked the rear wheels, and put it in 6th gear. It took me about 4 hours to replace mine, working on it at night with a head light and flash light. I bought mine from Autozone. It was new, with life time warranty, and had all the seals except the top one for the tube that goes to the thermostats. As far as the fan pully, I just used a steel pin and a hammer on the corner of the nut. These write-ups are great.

Just wanted to agree with everyone else on how helpful the write up was. I have always done my own repair work, but it is a lot faster when someone else has done it first and gives you all the little tips and tricks to do it properly the first time.

thanks

as for the lower radiator hose.
i just installed my new block heater today. i replaced a few cooling hoses, including the lower radiator hose.
the new OEM lower radiator hose has a spring clip installed already and has a retaining clip to keep it loose.
the side that you grab with the pliers is facing down, easy access.
on the hose originally on the truck, the clip was facing up. impossible to get at, at the bottom of the radiator, under the transmission cooling lines, ect.
i removed the air filter box (from the rubber hose), removed the cooling expansion bottle, the bracket under it is easy to remove, it has 2 slotted screw holes, just loosen the 10mm head bolts and it lifts off (and a screw at the rear).
then i removed the lower transmission cooling line from the radiator (slide the plastic collar off and pry the clip out. line comes right out and just a few drips of fluid).
now, you can get on the clip. still a son of a gun to wiggle the hose and slid eit off though.
the new hose was fun to get back in.
i dropped it in from above (from the passenger side) and down into place. the clip was easy once in place.
it probably took me 10minutes to take these parts out and about the same to put back int to gain access to the lower hose.

Guess i'll be tackling this pretty soon myself. Walked out to the shed this morning and seen antifreeze under the truck and running out from under the front drivers side of the truck. Its always something...

I am going replace mine this weekend because it has been leaking for last few weeks. One question, when I drain the radiator how much new coolant will I have to put in? I just don't want to buy more than I need. Also I bought a tru flo pump from Napa which cost about $135 twice as much as a new one from Shucks because I am hoping it will be better and I don't want to have to do this again. Any of you guys use the tru flo pumps from napa and were they good?

I believe you will need to add 4 gallons after draining the radiator.

I like to buy the concentrate stuff and add 50% water to it so I only have to buy 2 gallons.
