Hi Guys, I want to replace my radiator as it's getting a bit old.
I've been quoted about AUS$1000 for a OEM Celsior radiator by Toyota. Are there any other cheaper options out there?
It seems that the UCF10 ADM Lexus LS400 radiator (which is just as expensive from toyota but maýbe a little bit cheaper from Nippon Denso) doesn't have the same shroud mounting lugs. But may still be OK for a Celsior. Any Ideas?

Yep try this , when my Celsior radiator is due I will be getting in one of those bolt in alloy job's from the States , brand new made to fit and about $350.00 to buy and no more than $200 to freight . Don't know if you knew this but your current radiator is copper , alloy is at least 20 percent more efficient than copper , I will also be thinking seriously about getting a new condenser in at the same time , will add bugger all to the freight and if new need a new radiator then you are probably due for a condenser as well . Get a late 93 or later condenser as they are designed for 134 gas .

Bill, is the radiator a plastic tank unit, or a brass tank?? Go see the boys at Tonkin Radiators( Barry, or John) on Grand junction Rd, Mansfield park. And tell them I sent you. It should be able to be repaired, or recored.

Still the same deal , I have bought 3 new radiators in from Japan , brand new in alloy , bolt in made for the Celsior , would be getting close to the $600.00 dollar mark now . I have a brand new UCF21 [1995 Celsior ] sitting in my workshop which could be fitted to an earlier model with a little bit of work . I need to see $400.00 for it .
