Radiator for a 89 with a 3400

Postby lmnjlo » Wed Nov 25, 2015 9:46 pm

It looks as though my 89 with a 3400 has a coolant leak out of the factory, yes it's still the original, radiator. What radiator should I be getting to swap it out? A 3100 radiator from say a 95 or 96 beretta?

Are you running a newer expansion tank? Without that you wouldn't have a way to fill the radiator because newer ones don't have a cap on them.

Ah yes. You are correct. I am using my stock expansion tank...though I can easily change to the newer style.

I'll just match up my 89 to my 96. I had to plug a hole on the 89 radiator because of the swap I did years ago. I'll just need to so that again with a new 89 radiator.

That extra hole was blocked off in the '91 radiator I bought years ago.
