Needs a " little leverage ".


If you can't run with the big dogs,
stay on the f@ckin' porch.

Thought you meant cover wouldn't come off motor. To get cover out remove radiator. Take out from front.

Dont forget the sealant in the half circle areas and make sure the washer/ orings under the bolts that hold the cover are good.. I change mine when I do it because I don't want to go back in for that
