    What gauge and material are your brackets made from ? I have a Ford so my inlet and outlets are swapped. The S14 - 200sx Nissan is the one for Chevy engines. Make sure you go for the 52mm thick 3 row.
    The radiator should be mounted on rubber fixings. I have been looking at rubber mounts and they seem to be expensive at £26 two pairs of grommets .

    50mm x 5mm x 600mm across the back, https://www.metalmaniauk.com/Steel/B...0mm-x-5mm.aspx cut to size £4.90 exc VAT.

    50mm x 3mm x 1500mm for everything else, https://www.metalmaniauk.com/Steel/B...0mm-x-3mm.aspx £6.25 exc VAT.

    And a bunch of theses from Rimmer Bros', https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-572312A, 60p each including VAT, perfect fit for the pegs.

    Plus a few days sodding around to get everything to line up and get the radiator to lean back a touch and whatsit's your Uncles fanny. Couple of coats of Hammerite and Job done.

    On to moving the engine!

    Fibet have a wide range of rubber mounts.

    https://www.fibet.co.uk/

    I have no idea if they are competitive on price mind you. I have used them for engine mounts though and they are very helpful.

    Thanks Graham,

    The steel bar looks ideal for mounting and the rubber mounts.

    Fibet look an interesting company. They have a lot of different options.

    Any issues using the engine mounts, thinking along the lines of torque during acceleration and deceleration and the like? There are a few on there that would work better with the bracket mods' I have in mind.

    The bottom outlet may only be 35 mm, going to around 45mm OD to the US water pumps inlets, is there a flow issue there or simply just reducers required etc?

    I've not had any flow issues with that setup, just use a reducer.
    I've had two of those rads in different cars.

    Go for quality silicone hoses as the first hose reducer I purchased was poorly finished. My original supplier did not have the reducer in stock at the time.

    The new supplier was advertised as quality and manufactured in the U.K..

    I was very disappointed with the quality. A noticeable step inside at the reduction point and the wall thickness was linear so clamping would of been a problem. So buyer be ware.

    I ended up with ASAP hoses and was very happy with the quality and used Mikalor stainless clamps.
