I am posting this for my Son. He is preparing to install a new radiator in a Deere 6220 CHA for his neighbor. Is there any shortcuts or tips that you guys may have to make this install go good? Ken Sweet
Radiator swap is not too difficult. Be sure to get the correct one. There are three different serial number ranges. The earliest serial number substitutes a newer radiator and some other parts to make it fit. The basic procedure is to unfasten oil cooler(oops, oil cooler is not in the front on 20 series) and condensor and lay them on top of the engine. There should be enough hose to lay them out of the way without unhooking hoses. The fan shroud is connected to the radiator with three plastic push pins. Just pull the pins out. Then drain coolant and unhook the hoses. Getting to all the hoses is a little challenging on the bottom. Then there is one bolt on each side that holds the radiator in place. The bolts take a 10 mm wrench. The radiator then just lifts straight up and out. Good Luck!
