i have the same problem, the radiator is installed at a slant... so there's not much room to play around.
86 is already in the simplest form.
Drain the radiator into a container. Remove the upper radiator hose from the engine. Remove the 2 bolts in the thermostat housing. Remove the thermostat, clean both surfaces and install the new thermostat. Install the housing and 2 bolts. Reinstall the radiator hose and top off the antifreeze.
Take it to a body shop. They have to open hoods when jammed in wrecks.
Your best bet is to get yourself a Haynes Manaul for the car. All of the locations of parts are in photos and diagrams. You can get a Haynes at any good auto parts store.
Brand new off the assembly line they cost $21,265.00
My personal experience with my '86 Accord lxi: after calling all radiator repair shops in town, it was just as cheap to buy a new radiator with a warranty as it was to rebuild my old radiator.
Drain the radiator and dispose of the fluid as it is toxic to animals. Take off the pump drive belt, and remove the fan. unbolt the water pump and pull it out. Install the new pump, and reinstall the fan and belt. Fill the radiator with fresh coolant.
