78/9 Bronco manuals say you need to remove the starter to access all the oil pan bolts. I find pulling and reinstalling the starter is much more tedious (1/4 turn on the bolts gets old) than fishing for a couple oil pan bolts. In reality, it's not so bad...I take my 1/4" set, use a 6" ext. to a wobble joint to a standard length socket. You can't reach up directly to the bolt, but if you work your way in from the end of the starter, (kinda like operation, but with a ratchet extension) you'll be on your bolt in no time. If you wanna get real fancy, magnetize your socket (then you won't have to worry about falling off your bolt)...then put a piece of rubber hose over your socket so it doesn't stick to anything else.

Anyone wanting to swap in a super cooling radiator may be instructed to get upper hose 7799 (NAPA PN, cross reference PN's for other stores) to fit properly. Well that hose is $32. However, you can also get hose 7757 (NAPA PN), you will need to fine trim both ends a little, but this hose is $15...$17 in your pocket to buy that antifreeze you'll need.
