The landrover discovery rad seems to be a nice snug fit in the nose cone , it also has a built in oil cooler/ heat exchanger. its 540mm wide and 420mm high with a tank width of 100mm . These are five core units and will cool anything.

Good find Bob, for anybody with a tuned engine it will be the answer to cooling problems.

Any details on model, year, part number.

Any diesel landrover 90/110 or discovery 1 series with the TDI engine. You can get the ali one but I am using the one with brass tanks so I can change the bottom pipe to a 90 bend which will be harder on the ali ones with plastic tanks

Had another play with the rad and its position in the nose cone and if its laid back a bit more it goes higher in the nose cone and the bottom hose will not foul the lower wishbone mounts. So I bought the two remaining rads from that ebay add. They turned up yesterday and I only purchased them 3pm the previous day. Bargain. :)

Final position for the rad gives it about 15mm clear of the fiberglass all round and is high enough to leave the oil cooler aperture clear , it also puts the top hose level with the thermostat housing. Its all stood on blocks which are going to fall down as soon as I move the nose cone so god knows how I am going to measure up for brackets. :lol:

And one of the new rads

i purchased a sheet of 3mm plate so I can start to mock up mounts etc, i had a quick play with the plasma cutter and started throwing some rad mount Ideas about. I think i will make a small subframe for the lower mounts on the rad and weld it to the chassis and have the top bolted as in the original set up. that will allow the use of the large rubber grommets on all four corners.

First attempt :) not sure if i will go with this but its a start.
