Would a Rad from a Cav fit an Astra? Like, are they all the same? I have just got hold of a 1993 Astra 1.7td and the rad is buggered, will any Cav rads fit or do I need to look out for a rad from an Astra ?
Cheers.
Phil.

Can't answer your question directly, but be aware that there are several different Cav radiators, depending on whether they include an oil cooler for engine and/or auto box, etc.

Good luck!

There are a few radiator specialists online where you can order rads from and also show pictures of all the rads avalible for all the various models,also give sizes and where the outlets go.Very usefull but i can't remeber the name of the company sorry you'll have to try searching google.

you will need an astra radiator as the top mounting legs go up into little brackets bolted to the slam panel & the legs on the cav ones go to the sides & if its the isuzu engine you will need the proper rad as nowt else fits.

thanks, that answers that question then...........:D
Now all I have to do is find a decent one, and yep, it's an Isuzu, bet the buggers are expensive and rare as hen's teeth.

Cheers, so I could fit a rad from say a Vectra as long as it's a Isuzu engine?
The reason I ask is that there is one on flea-bay at the moment, he is breaking a Vectra for spares.............
