Drain, remove two hoses, if auto remove trans lines (two), remove fan guard, remove overflow container, bolts at top sides, lift out, confirm pepcock is in new one, if not use one from old unit. Install new unit,replace all above, in reversed order. Replace cap with new one. Consider a lifetime warrnity over just a one year. Fill with good coolent, run motor top off coolent, check for leaks. Recheck coolent after motor is driven and cooled. Takes about one hour.
