LF Rad - Used

Looking for a Used Rad that doesn't leak! Mine seems to be leaking so I need to swap it out for another one. Hit me up if it's a decent price and I'm willing to travel a bit to get the part

Well my car is a 87, I don't think there a is a difference? Looks like it's only 2 bolts from the plastic sides holding it on along with the hoses attached. I got the fan clutch fan tonight, so I only need the rad =\ Then my car is complete, no leaks, no mechanical problems then lol.

First picture looks just like my engine bay. All dirty except I have a m30 afm =D

The only hose running into the engine block from the reservoir is just like picture #1, only that small hose from the top of the rad runs the same way. All other rad hoses are on the bottom and lead to other places.

Found a picture of the engine.

Nahhhh.. I was hoping to introduce the world to flying cars! Didn't happen though. Let me know if your heading to your bro's on the weekend, I'd like to pick up the hood latch and cable! I would love to just pull on the latch and have it pop instead of doing the screw driver technique >_< Thinking tonight is rad + fan change time!
