So I'm trying to remove the fan and waterpump from my '52 H, but it doesn't come out like a video I saw of an M waterpump being removed(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2tmR7Zmyhk). Even with the radiator rocked forward there isn't room to get it out. So it looks like I need to remove the radiator (which I was thinking about doing soon anyway). My question is... how does the steering shaft come out? Does it come out from the front? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

To remove the radiator you must remove the grill and on the
wishbone shaped casting at the front end you will see a large pipe
cap which you unscrew with a large wrench. Then you will need to
remove the bolt that holds the horizontal steering shaft onto the
sloped steering shaft and turn the steering wheel to the right. The
horizontal shaft will come out of the hole where the pipe cap was
and once the shafts are separated you will need to pop the
woodruff key out of the horizontal shaft and then the shaft will
slide right out.

The shaft detaches at its rearward end, then the front big plug comes out of the steering box. (clean the shaft if cruddy) then take it out the front. It will screw out for the first 3 inches or so. Jim

Thanks for the help guys... I decided to go ahead and start taking stuff apart. I ended up doing just as Zach suggested except instead of turning the wheel I turned the castle nut at the front and it came right apart and out.

I was able to get the radiator off as well, only problem is one of the radiator mounting studs broke off in the radiator. Nothing like making more work for myself. I think while I have the radiator off I'll send it to a shop and get it cleaned up.

Thanks!

Also use your big compressor and a blow gun and spend about 30 minutes blowing 30 years of dust out of it. Do both sides. Geck the stat also. New fan belt when assembling and you have a new cooling system.
