breakfast from the UK?

Building a 90 from parts and I got a breakfast and radiator support from the UK but when I go to put the top brackets on they are about an inch to tall and dont seat on the pins. My rad is about 18 inches tall, is this the correct dimension? Are the diesel radiators taller? Are the NAS brackets lower?

The correct bracket per the parts manual are ESR68, 69 but I cant find a source. Does any one whos done a swap have the correct NAS ones laying around.
Thanks,


Keith

The brackets are different depending on what radiator you're fitting.

What's going in? Tdi? V8? NA diesel?

300tdi brackets bolt to the top of the radiator panel. V8 ones bolt to the sides of the wing panels....

Keith- Try RDS (Rovers Down South) They make two different(look-alike) brackets to hold the radiators. Sounds like you have the 300tdi version. Although I would put the difference in height at 1/2" or so.
