Disco 1 Radiator in NAS 110

I promise I search before posting my dumb questions. If this has been addressed, I apologize. I assume I can drop a Disco 1 radiator into my V8 Defender. It seems like with miinor modification it would fit fine. Has anyone had any issues doing this? Thanks in advance. Damn this truck is getting expensive.

part numbers are different ... defender is ESR3685 vs ESR3687 for the Disco

I wouldn't assume they are compatible but i also don't know they arent!

I'm sure someone here has the dimensions off the top of their head...

I can measure when I go home but it sure seems that the Disco radiator is wider than the Defender.

Lets just say, the D1 radiator is alot wider. I have one in my barn that I need to clear out. Didn't even try to fit it in my 90....

D1 Radiator does not even come close to fitting...

Dimensions and mounting points are very very different.
A DI radiator cannot be easily adapted to fit, in fact it may not be able to be adapted at all.

This- I have d1 and rrc radiators here in excellent shape and there is no way to fit them. As said above- re-coring is the only way to go.

thanks

I appreciate all the advice. Truck is in the shop, so I couldn't physically compare the two. I found an old thread from another forum where someone had done it, but looks like they had to fabricate new mounting points, which sounds like a PITA. sounds like re-coring is a much better option. thanks again

Just had mine re-cored last week. Moved up to 3 core, and bigger tubes. Total was $500, which included taking a "dent" out of one of the tanks. Have put about 200 miles on this week (hot, sweaty miles), and it is doing great!
