There is an ea-82 2wd on the back of my farm, I may just have to go yank it's rad.
Thanks for the idea.

I cut a piece of steel, drilled two holes, mounted one end at bottom of rad, the other use a self tapping screw into a hole that I found down below. This keeps the bottom of the rad from flapping around.
At the top, it was just a matter of lining up and drilling two new mounting holes. Piece of rubber on each side, and it seems to fit just fine. The ea-82 radiator is alot lighter than the ea-81 rad.
The lower radiator hose is another problem. The ea-82 outlet comes out and up, whereas the ea-81 just comes straight out. A new hose is in order. I have an idea on what might work. I will go to ****vance and have them pull a ea-81 lower radiator hose out and then have them look for a hose that is the same but without the lower bend(s). It should work just fine.
