Hayseed, to remove the radiator it has to come up about 6 inches to clear the frame before it can start coming forward, with the shaft installed the radiator can only come up an inch or two. 



OK,
The Hole Looks Oblong? If you Tilt the Radiator Forward as far as you can Undo the front engine Mounts & jack the front of the Motor up. will that give you enough clearance to slip the Radiator Forward??

Thanks, I really appreciate all the replies. Hayseed, to remove the radiator it has to come up about 6 inches to clear the frame before it can start coming forward, with the shaft installed the radiator can only come up an inch or two. 

I've decided to punt on the radiator removal for now, I only have about 2 weeks before the truck has to go Leesburg for the VTOF show, and if I do get the radiator out I don't know if I can get the radiator back from the shop to meet that timeframe. They are pretty busy. In the meantime I can come up with some tooling that will get the shaft loose. For now I can disassemble the cooling components on the engine and thoroughly flush the block, and do a rinse on the radiator while in place. So that's the plan for now.
