    Hi Mate

    You can only fit them to the GEMS and you need to replace the orignal thermostat with a housing (or sputnik as Ron called them)

    You can then put a Tridon TT2000-180 thermostat in the spot on the inlet manifold

    I believe some people have been able to remove the guts of the standard thermostat and use the housing for this purpose

    I guess you've had the radiator in for a while now, how has it performed? Has there been a significant change in operating temperatures?
    I'm currently battling overheating issues/ air locks and these radiators seem like a good upgrade over the standard ones, for only slightly more than a OEM replacement.

    I'd love to know how they managed that, doesn't look like an easy task.

    It works very well for me with the original viscous fan running

    The Aussie desert cooler is twice as deep as the original radiator

    Me either, I never managed to do it

    I had an aluminium unit made by Aussie desert cooler, when I get back to OZ i'll take a picture of a spare one I have and post it here

    Thanks for the photo, I've seen this item pop up a few times. I'm going to have a go at making one out of copper.
