Newbie on a quest
*FYI: For this thread I will use my photobucket account for my pics as I cant figure out the photo upload on here*
So after smashing my front end up last sat I started on my first front end rebuild job this week. So far I have the bumper/components, headlights, grille, grille reinforcement panel, and pass. side fender removed and can see the extent of the damage. I was tld its fixable let me know what you think.
Thanks to STL i now have a new chrome grille on the way and I got my grille reinforcement panel from the ford house today as well as the new Hayden tranny oil cooler. Now is the fun part i guess which is going and getting the frame bent back into place. Anyone actually paid for a frame to be fixed? No ins will be involved in this its all out of pocket(I was too stupid to get full coverage but never again will that happen.
Now back to the tranny oil cooler, I cant figure out where and how to mount this thing as the instructions are pretty vauge and dont say how to exactly use the zip ties included for install. Can someone explain how to use them? I dont want to try to mount it and mess up my radiator before i ask you guys.
Also if looking at tranny fluid lines from the front which line is the send line and which is the return line? I know you can test by running the truck for a few seconds but i dont have anything on the lines and dont want to risk damage to tranny as you have to put it in drive to test.
only frame fix and exterior fix to go...
