thanks for the great writeup on changing the coolant elbows in the knowledge database. I did the job on Sat, and it went pretty smooth. Last weekend I replaced a badly leaking water pump, which only made the elbows leak more.
All in all it wasn't a "bad" job, but getting the broken pieces out of the intake wasn't overly fun. I tried pushing in on one corner to get it to rotate so I could grab it with needlenose, which only succeeded in pushing the whole thing in.
I discovered that plugging the water pump hole with a rag and adding water to the radiator flushed the pieces to the opening on the intake so I could fish them out.
