I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

I need the last 8 of the vin to pull directions and also if you can tell me what it is catching on at this point. I normally drop the undercarriage 3" or so

It will not pass the rack and the metal pipe that has the 3inch hose (removed the hose). I did get the carriage to drop close to 3 inches by loosening the other side but still can't get it to pass out the bottom.

Hose actually attaches to water pump

I remove the cooling fan and pull it out the front.
