Per the Ford Service manual the fan shroud should come out the bottom and the radiator comes out the top. I suspect that following the Ford procedure may provide for a bit more clearance.

However it is good to know there is an alternate in the event whoever wrote the manual was a complete idiot. BTW having worked on the automotive supply side since 1982 I have to say I am NOT at all impressed with today's "engineers". So it's very possible this section of the Service Manual was done by someone fresh out of college who doesn't even know what a Ratchet is. So alternate approaches are a GOOD thing.
I worked as an automotive engineer at Chrysler and Ford back in the 90's. The manuals are written by 100's of different people with very little coordination, and most were not engineers. And we were always at war with marketing and others for the actual content. We mostly gave up trying to get the manuals right. But having said that, I know great engineers who just can't write.

Well, hopefully things have changed in that department from 30 years ago...

Doing an Mountune Radiator install with 4 port Aux. Fuel was a real PIA due to the intake and Alt. Being pushed out further giving less room for maneuvering the old one out and new one in FYI. I haven't seen others talk about it so I thought id mention it here.
