Hi, my Rad is shot on my 1600 coupe what aftermarket can i use.i know i will have to fabricate mountings all i am worried about is the overflow pipe on the expansion bottle doi need itbor can i block it off. I see you can fit a st focus one but for my needs will a normal focus one be ok as long as i get the dimensions right.One other problem is the fan switch in the rad itself

I think as per the advice on FB you are best getting your current rad re-cored/rebuilt. A few threads on here about using a Focus ST rad, but for performance when twin carbs are fitted. I'm not aware of any generic aftermarket item.
