EL radiator won't fit or suit. Due to the separate coolant resevoir etc

XB Fairmont (street car) 11.07@123.02mph.

XD, XE or XF large radiator will just fit between the chassis rails nicely.

Yep - top mounts from an XA or so with the wide crossflow radiator - the ones that go back on a 45 degree angle.

Bottom mounts from an XF can be made to work well with some flat bar to go between the chassis and the castor rod support...

This is what I'm doing on my ZD EFI conversion - sorry, no pics at present...

Also, the XF overflow bottle and washer bottle will fit right in there...

Have XF with EL fans in my XT. Got a fitting put onto the radiator so the fans only come on when the engine needs to be cooled, similar to most modern cars
