Like the subject says. I have the one that came with the 79 (no A/C) it's a little guy. The one from the 16v donor (w/A/C) is bigger but I'm not sure how it will fit in the '79. Also the black cardboard bafling on each side of the rad support will have to come out. (no prob). SO, while I am at it, is there a better way to go for max cooling capacity. No A/C will be in this car so the stock 16v will probly be a good increase here. How to attach it in there is the Q. I have "pins" that set on thick rubber bushings as it is now on the rad suppport at just a hair over 26" but the bottom of the 16v rad also has pins but at 29 1/4" . Should I just drill the rad support and eye-ball the placement?
I saw a link for a dual fan set up from a early Passat I might try later.
