    @sd_sig ....
    wow what a great and cost effective idea if old shape 2.O.D's radiator fits well here. The bigger fan motors you are talking about are of which car? Thats also a good idea.

    @ its_me .....
    I went to the same area in Sultan Ka Khoo (Chah Sultan). One guy had a radiator of 95-96 Accord and per him it will fit in 89 model too. He didn't qouted the price (coz i went to him with a reference) but i beleive it will be in between
    4-5 K. Let C if it fits or not i'll go there tonight or tomorrow there to get it fixed.

    @eidee... i had a 89 accord with a toyota radiator, with 2 water channels ( 2 nalli ) and toyota fans. also fill the radiator with coolant.
    my car never heated up even though it had a lot of modifications to the engine which usually drive up the heat output. and also with an a/c.

    @tauseefmutwahir .......

    How much did u paid for this toyota radiator....? Coz

    1- I checked from Chah Sultan & the guy asked 7-8K for 2O.D.'s 2 Nali Radiator. Plus teh seller added that brackets needs to be changed / alter adn over all this set up will be named as alteration.

    2- Khan Sb. is aslo looking to get one from TURKHAM other wise he already got in stock radiator for 95-96 Accord which is per him will suit 89-model too.

    i got it for 4800 rs 2 years back.. and yes it requires some adaptation for the top only, adapters are added to the front beam which connects the two front lights..
    i think this is a necessary modification, its a 22 year old car, it needs some modification to keep it functioning like new.

    Just an update i just spoke with the Khan Sb. and if the radiator (95-96 Accord) fits well then he asked me 4000 Rs. which includes fans, labour etc. So i think deal is not that expensive.

    tauseefmutwahir / sd_sig / Its_Me....what do you guys say?

    Tauseef can i have pic of ur car / radiator set ups pics please?

    I went to the Chah Sultan for the radiator change but UNFORTUNATLY the available radiator (Accord 95-96) though was in ery xcellent condition but didn't fit in the space given. It was two inches wide than of 89 model.

    89 Model Radiator Width 23.75 Inches
    95 Model Radiator Wisth 25.75 Inches

    Just spoke with khan sb. & he found one for the 90-92 model with same width / hight (per him). Let C if that one fits well. So will go there in the evening today and post the pics later.

    Price is 6500/- for this and in trade of old one the price will further decrease to 6,000/- ...... OFFFFFFF

    Finally the 92-92 model radiator fit it and my worries came to an end. Its a double channel (double Nali) and it was very neat & clean look almost like new.....! Paid net 6K for it and old radiator was given in a trade off.
    Also asked a PW member Mustafa in LHR who also owned a Accord-89, he cheked from bilal gunj and found a normal condition radiator in 8,000/-

    Also went to KALIA USTAAD (chah sultan) he didn't have one in stock but for double nali he asked for 6K too (but without fans).

    @Its_me.....here is a clarification....
    1- Khan Sb. himself owned the 96-model readiator so he was charging almost the purchase price with little profit. But as it didn't fit in and needs alteration so
    2- He arranged from another vendor the 92 model radiator who was asking 7K for it but after bargaining and a trde off of old radiator i had to pay 6K last night.

    No there is only one step that we left behind last night while this radiator swap......
    Old radiator had the auto fan switch in the bottom tank of the radiator....but the new one has not.......
    So now we have to alterate the KUGHEE (where thermostate is fitted inside) or to install a kughee of the other model i.e. 90-92 which involves Rs. 500 more.....

    Oh not a problem yar....i could understand ur postion.

    I will ask him abt the Lancer-97 radiator.....once the shops will open up. He is really a very nice chap and as i went to him with a reference so he didn't charged me anything extra to the price of radiator. mean on which price he bought from other shop keeper i paid the same amount.
