Radiator Question.....

I've got a thread going on the Topica List about this, but I thought I'd bring it here for some more input.

I've been on the search for a new radiator. And along the way I've found some interesting info.

There are 2 different radiators for a Samurai. Up to Vin # J4235001 is a cheaper radiator and after vin # J4235001 is a more expensive radiator. I apparently have the newer more expensive one.

I found a local guy who will sell me a Modine radiator with warranty for less than $100 for the older model and $150 for the newer style.

Does anyone know the difference in the 2?
And will the older style fit in my Zuk?

Re: Radiator Question.....

Jay,
If the more expensive one is the only one that will fit you'd be better off getting the 3 row from Petroworks. It's only $165.

Re: Radiator Question.....

Re: Radiator Question.....

I think Zooky swapped in an older one after his plastic tank one died. (the older one is brass tanks.)
I think it is a direct swap. If not the most you would have to do is drill a hole or 2.

Re: Radiator Question.....

I agree - I think the only difference is that one has brass tanks, and the other composite ones.

Re: Radiator Question.....

JBird, the older and newer radiators are interchangeable. It is a direct bolt-in and you can probably find a good used one cheap, if you're not wanting a new one. If you want a new one, the cheaper one from Modine for less than a $100 should work just as well as the new style with the plastic tank.

Re: Radiator Question.....

Thanks for the replies.

My plan as of now, is to buy the older style next week when I get paid. I know I can find a used one cheap, but I want to put this over-heating problem behind me. So for around $100 I'll have the peice of mind that the radiator is working right.

I'll post an update and let everyone know how the install goes.
