Is there any difference between those models?

I have a radiator which should be a direct fit to my '90 SC. But it isn't. The attachment holes in the car are not near to radiator ones. Actually there are no holes in the radiator, only the pins. The bottom is ok. It fits perfectly.

I quess I'll have to modify my "bolt on -radiator"...:mad:

The post below might clear up some of your questions regarding the different years. It's a long read but worth it.

Yes,that I knew it. But it's not the problem. Problem are those mounting brackets.

I have a '94 and I'm pretty sure the Griffin I bought was for a late model as well, but to be honest the upper radiator mounting tabs are terrible. I had to modify both the DS and PS mounts and brackets (that bolt to the upper support) for a good fit and to not rub the wiring harness.
