Yeah, when I did mine, I had to disconnect the PS pump hoses (sorry Brett,
forgot to mention that in my other email).  I was able to leave the PS
pump itself in place.  Lots of wiggling and shifting, but I was able to
get the fan/shroud assembly out without disconnecting any coolant hoses or
removing the radiator.
