I need to either recore my radiator or get one in a Pic-A-Part, what models might interchange with my 86 Brat 4x4 4 speed no air? I live in the desert,:Flame: so one with more rows might be of benifit.

Not sure what would be an upgrade interchangible, but heres what I do know.
81-89 Hatchbacks
81-87 Brats
80-84 Wagons
All of those should fit in like it was made for it. I think*

I would suggest just spending the $100 and get a new one. Your just as likely to get junk from a junk yard and recoring these is a more or less a waste of money. There are some parts that souldn't be scrimped on and the radiator is one (especially in the desert). Later, Tim

All EA81 radiators are dual core. I would definitely recommend getting a brand new one especially since you live in the desert.

As for what models fit, any EA81 bodied car.
