Well, I have everything apart and the radiator is ready to lift out but I can not get the water pipe to pull apart. I put a chain around the radiator and tried to pull the top forward but the pipe will not pull out. I tried to turn the pipe with a pipe wrench but it won't give. It does just pull out of the radiator or the housing on the motor, doesn't it?

use a torch to heat up the ends the fastest and easiest. I would do both ends while it is apart. Use dish soap on the new o-rings and ends of pipe when you put it back together to make them slide together easier.

There's an "O" ring in there that gets hard and literally vulcanizes itself in place, not to mention rust.

Lots of "loosen juice", and wiggling the pipe with a chain-type pipe wrench MY do the trick.

More than once, I have had to resort to heating the end areas with a torch to the point of charring the "O" ring.

I got it!!! I sprayed it with WD-40 and did some work on my rake. I went back and soaked it again and wiggled it back and forth and it pulled out at the top. All the bolts and nuts came loose on the top tank so I remove that and then lifted the core and bottom tank off. Thanks guys.
