Hi Tyson

any chance it is the same as the AVGP family? I have a dozen of those NOS in crates.

Not the same, and if you are working on a M113A1 (and not an A2) you have to be careful not to get a lynx radiator. It will fit in the same spot, but is not as big. I had to change a bunch of those rads back in the early 80s because of the difference...had it down to about an hour and a half a rad.



I actually think I saw a couple of 113 rads out at my favorite surplus yard the other day. Next time I am out, I'll have a dig and see if I can find them. In the back of my head, I am thinking they are new and stored indoors.

Thanks guys unfortunately the avgp rads won't work as they are way diffrent. Rob we were unaware that the rads were different would a 113 rad work in a lynx?

Thanks for your help

If the clearance is there, and I suspect it is, then it should. As I mentioned, guys were installing the lynx rads into M113s without noting the difference.
