Bob, is this the one?

You can take this file to a Kinko's and have them print it out and laminate

it.

Can you get the fans out without removing the radiator with them?B  The same

bracket secures the bottom ends of both.

Yes.  The fan frame bolts onto the Radiator brackets.

But my car is an FI version.



Just looking at this, at the very least, the electric fans have to come out

just get the pully off the end.BB  No room at all to clear it otherwise.

 Mine was FI too and I didn't have to remove the fans.B  And the ROM does not

mention removing the fans either.B  I know it looks tight in there but once

you remove the alternator pulley from the damper assy. (step 7 in 12.21.01 on

p. 40 of the ROM) you will have enough clearance.B  However, if you have to

get an air wrench on the damper retaining bolt, that MAY require removal of

the fans.B  I did mine with a breaker bar and a socket but I had to use a pipe

extension on the bar and that barely worked.B



Good luck!

I had my harmonic balancer reworked at Dale Manufacturing

http://www.hbrepair.com/  Hebs overhauled a few for the TR8.  My buddy had

one done by him, too.

I have replaced the front main seal on several TR8's.  I had to remove the

radiator, fans and take the bolts out of the A/C coils and move it as far as I

could to get an impact wrench on the harmonic balancer bolt for removal.

Sometimes the bold can be very difficult to remove and you may need space for

a puller to remove the front pulley.  Not a fun job.
