This thread comes up every few months, and as usual I'm mystified. The
pan under the radiator comes out fairly easy (it's only there to protect
the radiator), allowing access to the radiator bolts with a socket and
extension. I use a 1/4" extension with adapter to a 3/8" drive socket,
although a flex socket would probably work better.
This has worked on several TR3/As I've owned. Does it not work on
other's cars ?
