what exactly is broken about your radiator? and how?

the weekend is not exactly the best time to call around looking for car parts; I'll bet your luck will change when the new week starts.

Also, this thread will probably get moved to Classifieds >>> Wanted, just so you know why if/when it disappears.

i would just get core measurement. And make sure your in and out are right and any other connections. Go to an NAPA and find one that will work. They should should have soemthing that will work. Be nice though. It'll be some time. MAke sure you tell them exactly what you intend to do.

An EA81 radiator will fit, however, you need to redrill the holes in the top of the core support for it to bolt in.

you can use axles from an EA81 as well. They're a half an inch longer then the EA71 axles so they will work for a gen 1, just not gen 1 axles in a gen 2.
