    Intalling Riva intercooler upgrade

    I searched the forum but no luck in finding what I am looking for.

    1. I removed the bolts on the front of the engine to remove the intercooler bracket. It does not come off. is there a trick?

    2. It says to remove the reverse bucket cable. How do you get you hand up there to pull down the clip to take it off?

    I am sure there is more but this is where I am at the moment.

    Thanks.

    P.S. I am not a fan of this orange locktite crap they got going on here.

    I have that. I reached under the hood cowling. I can not get my fingers on it to pull down.

    Update: Got the reverbucket thing off. Now fighting with the bottom hose. Why must I be cursed with these fat fingers!

    I found it easier to just remove the plastic piece covering the reverse lever mechanism. 4 screws holding on the gauge cluster bezel and 3 or 4 bolts and it is off (That was on a SHO)

    Yeah I tried that. I got to the last bolt and the nut undernieth that is welded to the bracket broke lose and I can not get the screw out the rest of the way.
