LD28m - Heat Exchanger - Need Input

The heat exchanger core blew out. Tried to repair, but it is too far gone I'm afraid. Any idea where I can get a new one or an alternative exchanger that I can substitute for the Nissan?

When you refer to heat exchanger, are you refering to the American term of the "radiator"? If so, usually if you can plumb in a similar sized unit from any other application and it should work.

Maybe take some measurements and have a look here

There are a number of different sites that list radiators by size etc. May not be an OEM rad but might get you close enough.


Good luck
