John Deere 60 Radiator Assembly Reinstallation

I"m helping my neighbor reinstall the radiator assembly in his John Deere model 60 tractor with power steering. He removed it several years ago, and recently put in a new core. He doesn"t recall having to remove the fan, power steering lines/hoses, etc. We tried yesterday to sit the radiator back in place, but the steering rod splined socket and cast housing is in the way. Didn"t know if there"s a certain way to go at it that allows it to slip into place, or do we have to reassemble the radiator assembly after it"s in the tractor? If so, we"ll have to take the top cast tank back off. Hoping somebody here knows the trick, or can confirm we have to take some stuff back apart.

Let me know if you try it. I can't tell you for sure which are the long bolts, but once you remove two and have a look at them, you will find a long one. Then, every other bolt going around is a long bolt.

We ended up removing the casting that has the gear and splined end for the steering shaft (see attached pictures). Radiator fit without a problem then. Thanks to all for help and suggestions.

Neighbor dropped off a book that shows unbolting the casting that includes the splined socket from the side of the pedestal. Will give that a try. Thanks to all for suggestions.

I see your pictures...for some reason, I am thinking the radiator normally needs to go IN from the Rt side and that is why I said the power Steering Control needs to be removed (taken "Loose") .

Looking at your pictures, I cannot see why it would not go "in" from the Left side..IF there is enough Height, with the Control still in place...

I found that (once the front sheet metal is removed, just take the Power Steering control off the top Rt side of the Pedestal and the radiator will slip out or in.. Ofcourse, the Air Cleaner must be removed, as it is bolted to the Radiator.. Use a New Gasket afterwards and adjust the Power Steering for "Center"...
