Hey guys got a problem with my EB radiator, I've got a spare EL one sitting there.
Question is, Will it fit? and or what do I need to modify?

cheers Smitty.

any aftermarket EB radiator has the slots for thermos. the inlet for the header tank to rad pipe comes out on a different angle. bottom hose is a different size i believe

Yes, the hoses are different diameters. I used a short piece of stainless exhaust pipe, expanded at one end, to join part of an EF & part of an EA bottom radiator hose. If you're going to get a new radiator, it's not worth the hassles. Just buy the correct radiator to suit your engine.

I think I paid about $180 for an exchange radiator at NatRad.
