    Also even though the guide says you can do it by your self. I would not recommended. Trust me on that one. I pull the radiator out by myself once and after I put the cam in I got help to put it back in otherwise I would have spend 1/2 day cussin' to try to align the tabs in from the radiator and the AC condenser.
