Radiator fan passenger side. Help!

From looking at it I assume I have to unbolt the radiator to take the fan off? No way to hold the bolt heads on back while I undo the nuts. Is there a way to get passenger side header out without removing the radiator fan?

The original bolts were captive and cannot turn due to them being locked in place by the radiator sheet metal. You should be able to spin those nuts off easily. I recently changed that fan on a 355 in very little time, including transferring "not-included" parts over to the new unit ....

Give it a try...

I had to buy a stubby 10mil wrench and contort my self into a position where I could hold it with 2 fingers. (Fan nuts and bolt). I thought about epoxing the bolts in place before I reassembl it in case I needed to remove cooling fan ever again. I ended up removing the oil cooler header fell right out. I will attach the fan before I put it back together. Now it's cleaning and some detailing until the new parts come in
