I would always buy a new one mate unless you know where its been,to much of a chance with the age of the second hand ones now.
Could be alsorts of crap in an old one, and if an engine has let go using it you could wreck your engine.

Can't find a new one that will fit the original mounts Sad All 9 row universal jobbies are wider than the standard mk1 cooler

Yep now you mention it I think you are right,
I think you can still mount a 235mm core aftermarket cooler though using the original mounts and with out modifying them or drilling new holes in the car, you may have to loose the plastic duct if it has one though and I am also not sure about the bar that runs across the front either.

Anyhow if I remember right there is possibly another hole for the off side mount to move over closer to the chassis leg so it will line up for the new cooler,think it makes it abit tighter for the horn though.

The only thing is you can only really use one mounting hole on each side of the new cooler unless you make some thing up,cant remember what I did now but I think I sandwiched rubber between the mount and cooler for vibration.
All the stock hoses still fit aswell so no problems there.

Think hakydan has a few pics in his thread...

I got one too



was OK on the car I removed it from - only swapped it as I got a really clean new looking one from a MK2 I broke a few years ago.

Ok thanks guys - I'll investigate fitting a new aftermarket one first then may come back to the idea of a second hand one.
