    thanks guys!

    mine is held onto the rad support with tie wire...

    they should sit on the og bottom mounts pretty well?

    ae71 4ac rad and 4k rad will be the same unless one is from an auto and one it from a manual.

    just go to a wreckers and get the top radiator mounts off the cars, if you dont know which cars they are from. tiewire.

    4ac and 4k rads are totally different. if you have a ke and u use an ae71 radiator it'll need custom mount brackets.

    hito: it all depends on what mount setup the radiator had in the car it came from. just see what it was and copy that into the ke. doesn't have to be super perfect just needs to work.

    really? as in AE71 4ac radiator are completly different or AE86 4ac ones are completly different?

    when we pulled radiators out of AE71s at the wrecker for the KE70s they were exact size except the auto ones where a bit thicker.

    i know that AE86 radiator is different to a AE71 but they are both 4ac

    when i put a ae71 4ac radiator in my ke70 i had to use custom mounts as the ae radiator is wider. ae71's have a different width gap in the front panel for a radiator with different mounts to the kesev

    exactly what i found.

    i currently have a ae71 radiator in my ke (so the inlet/outlets are on the right side for the 4age)

    i ended up putting one bolt in on one side, and then using tie wire on the other side. so it sits a little of centre but doesnt move.

    i dont think pics are goin to help ya mate as its just a matter of "making it fit".

    just take out the ke radiator, chuck the other one in.. and see if any bolt holes line up, and if they dont just drill a few new holes and chuck some bolts in!

    try giving your current radiator a decent flush, holding hand over bottom outlet, filling it up, and letting it all gush out...do this multimple times untill you notice a difference, you might find your current one is ok.

    haha just make a bracket. you only need an angle grinder and a drill. it'll be much better than cable ties or tie wire haha
