Disregard last post wrong machine. SorryYes you got to take out the radiator, the side covers the fan shroud. Be careful taking out the shroud you could damage the radiator fins the lower hose
is in the way. It's easier to separate the lower hose take that off first. I had to replace my 332 radiator they're expensive John Deere one at $910 for a new one. I found a refurbished one. The only left in the country for $500 factory rebuilt service pressure tested.
