you don't need to move the cover at all

just did mine the other day....the only thing you have to remove is the upper radiator hose.

the housing is a PITA to get to, but it is possible if you work slow.

if i remember right, they are 2, 10mm bolts holding the housing on

on mine they were 8mm. make sure you use the 192/195 motorcraft tstat. make sure the tstat is set properly in the housing. make sure you fill the radiater and overflow so the system can belled the air out....
