The trail toy is 83 toy 22r - I am having overheating issues and believe it is the radiator........
I have heard that some of the 80's-90's? V-6 radiators mount up perfectly to the early 80's toy 4cyl.
Anyone know exactly what years these V-6's are? My buddy is running a V-6 rad. out of a 4runner (he doesn't know the year) and it mounts up perfect to his 82.
Thanks, Trevor

(btw-I am currently running an elec. fan that barely fits, which if I go to a V-6 rad. would be forced to use the stock fan)

Not sure what size radiator 83's use, but the stock, 3 row radiator in my 85 4runner is more than adequate to cool the engine. What type of electric fan are you running? Have you replaced the t-stat?

most 4wd Toy trucks share the same radiator, the largest possible tha can fit cool your truck, but consider an aluminum aftermarket HD radiator
I am sure you can call around your area and find a radiator repair shop to order you one
the only difference is wether it is plumbed for a auto-tranny cooler for the automatic transmissions

My cousin used to own my 86' before me and he always had overheating problems so he put in a different radiator Im not totally sure but everything about it looked toyota and it fit right so I always assumed that It was a radiator from a toyota diesel pickup of about the same year. Becuase diesels should need a larger radiator or at least a lot of the ones ive seen have larger radiators...
