2004 E series radiator replacement advice?

My '04 E450 6.0 developed a very small crack in the radiator top just inside the upper radiator hose. It's barely visible, just a hair line, but it was slightly hissing and seeping after returning home from a trip to Mid Ohio Sports Car Course a couple of weekends ago. If it were my old chasis I'd probably rough it up and JB Weld it, haha, but I think a replacement is in order on this one. I searched and didn't find any specific threads to radiator replacement on the E Series. Any words of wisdom or suggestions of links with some good instructions? Still running the gold coolant too so this seems like a good time to flush it out with distilled and replace it with ELC after the new radiator is installed.

Thanks for any input or suggestions.

PS. I also posted this in the general forum because of the higher traffic...
