Yes you can, but you have to keep the reservoir as well.

Ok thanks will u please show me how to connect the resivore hoses? Please?

The res has a single line to it. The top heater hose has a T in it and runs from the heater core to the side of the timing cover and the t is about 6 inches before the connection for the timing cover. The hose from the t goes to the res.

Ok iam going to try this and see how it runs. Will I need any extra or additional hoses?

No. The only hoses that go to the radiator are the upper and lower hoses.

Ok and the hose coming out of the dash? Does it connect to the overflow resivore?

There are two hoses that come out of the heater core, both of them go to the fittings on the side of the timing cover. The one hose that has the T in it also runs to the res.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
