Radiator questions

Do you have to remove the radiator in order to get the shroud off that is between it and the engine?

Transmission lines connecting to bottom radiator... is a special tool required to remove these?

I'm trying to check my water pump because I have a bad leak, coolant leaks as soon as you put any in. I can see the water pump, but I am unable to get to it w/out taking the shroud off. Any other culprits this type of leak could be and where to check?

Thanks!

After looking at the leak further (filling degas bottle up and letting it leak) water came out the right around/just below the alternator... if what I'm looking at is what I think it is, then the water pump is in this area attached with four bolts, correct? which brings me back to accessing the water pump.. any help?

it could be water pump or timing cover. And yes that shroud will come out without removing the radiator and no there are no special tools to remove tranny lines if you opt to pull radiator.

There are two 8mm (I think) headed fastners that hold the shroud. Remove them and then pull up and on the shroud. It is not too bad and makes perfect sense once you do it.

Hmmnnn these guys must be workin on some kinda 6.0 I aint never seen before.

The shroud [stator] I am used to is a real pain. 4 15mm head bolts to the front of the motor. They can be reached and removed in place but not fun. Fan clutch and shroud have to be removed together to a certain point then the shroud can be forced back towards the cab and fan clutch extracted. Ya will mess up some fins on the radiator if yer not carefull. Box of band aids recomended.

assenmacher makes a anodized aluminum disconnect tool that works great

Assenmacher 1/2" Oil Cooler Line Rmvr Ford Trks 6.0L ASS8023 | eBay

only the 05-07 rads have the quick disconnect tranny lines, earlier years use a regular flared line and fitting

The fan and shroud assembly with the 4 bolts with the black plastic washers are a real pain to get out but the part of the shroud with the rubber seal on it will come out as a one piece. This is the part with the Powerstroke decal on it.

I bought my first set of those disconnects to remove the lines on a 03 F350 so it's not just the 05-07 range trucks. But I will admit to running into some of all year ranges that had regular flare lines. Not shure why tho.
