The radiator in my VT has gone. I have a new VY radiator sitting in the shed. Does anyone know if the radiators are the interchangable (havnt pulled the VT one out yet)?

Cheers,

Phil

As far as I can remember...

A VY radiator has a different setup pipe and cap wise.
A VY radiator has no cap. The fan setup on a VY radiator is also different and will need to be installed into the VT with the radiator.

Im pretty sure the overflow setup is different also.

It will fit but you will need to keep the VY fans and mod the pipes.

Maybe try it?

They are quick to change over, so give it a dry run.

Did it work ?
Depending on the member, some haven't been on since 2010, whilst the last one was on in 2020...So doubt they'll answer
