There are two sizes, the small one used for NA models, and the larger 
used for TD and models with A/C. If you have the smaller one, you will be 
able to see additional top mounting holes about 6" further apart than the 
ones being used, and a matching hole in the lower cross member further 
to the passenger side. If in doubt I can measure mine. New rads are fairly 
cheap, so not worth getting re-cored. You will need two new hoses if you 
change sizes.
