WHEN REMOVING OR INSTALLING, USE ONLY TOOLS DESIGNED FOR SERVICING THIS TYPE OF CLAMP, SUCH AS SPECIAL CLAMP TOOL (NUMBER 6094) (Fig. 12). SNAP-ON CLAMP TOOL (NUMBER HPC-20) MAY BE USED FOR LARGER CLAMPS.

ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES WHEN SERVICING CONSTANT TENSION CLAMPS.

CAUTION: A number or letter is stamped into the tongue of constant tension clamps (Fig. 11). If replacement is necessary, use only an original equipment clamp with matching number or letter.

REMOVAL

(1) Disconnect battery negative cable.

(2) Observe the previous WARNINGS.

(3) Remove radiator pressure cap.

(4) For access to radiator draincock, remove radiator grill mounting screws and remove grill. Refer to Group 23, Body for procedures.
