Firstly ... thanks to all for the help so far. What a great board, good people, good advice. Found the ser. #, I got a 1954. I really dig this tractor, so easy to work on. I have the sheet metal off the top but can't seem to get the grill off, have all the bolts out around the top and two that hold it on the frame rails, but still won't budge. Am I missing something or do I have to take the whole rad assembly off? Thanks again

The two bolts that go into the radiator from the bottom side are 1/2 inch- use a 3/4 inch socket and extension handle to loosen them. Not quite a straight shot to the bolts, but the extension can slide by the c-rail and still hold the head of the bolt. Slide the cowling forward, then you can remove the radiator after disconnecting the upper and lower radiator hoses.

Should be 2 nuts and bolts towards the rear,one on each side(also holds generator/ alternator in place) and the front is held in by 2 bolts that thread into the radiator from the bottom.The radiator and sheet metal should come off as one unit. After it is off the tractor you can pull the radiator out of the grill.
