Earlier in the year, I picked up this radiator from a Fiero in the junkyard. Normally, I would only buy new parts when it came to this, but this radiator was basically brand new. It
appeared to me as if the previous owner of that car in the junkyard had just replaced the entire cooling system, only to have a hose chafe and fail, causing the entire car to overheat. All I did was flush the radiator (it was clean inside),
use compressed air on the fins to clean them, and installed it as-is.
Using new radiator hoses from the Fiero Store kit I had purchased, I completed the attachment from the cooling tubes to the new radiator assembly.
I couldn't find good reproduction original style hose clamps, so I went with the generic kinds from the local auto parts store. This is also an automatic radiator, and I'm converting to a manual, so I sprayed WD-40 and lubricant
into the transmission cooling tube, and capped it off on the top and bottom. After installing the radiator, I also placed my new OEM radiator warning stickers from Rodney Dickman (picture 4) back onto the radiator support bracket.
