don't know what fittings they are then, even a Range Rover classis 200tdi list ESR1262 as the adaptors. might be from another unknown vehicle or source.

same adaptors as I've noted above,

on the old adaptor what is on the other side of the circular bit ?

can't find anything like it in the parts list I use, do you know if the radiator is a genuine LR item or from another supplier [not LR]

wonder if a previous owner has altered the adaptors, or is it your vehicle from new ?

The old adaptor does not look like a genuine/comercial part to me as its not plated and the middle section has no spanner flats for tightening into the cooler.

now you've offered that Phil it could be a homemade/one off adaptor for the job, maybe it was a replacement rad & one of the previous owners disposed of the old rad & adaptor then realised the adaptors were meant to be swapped.

Porsche, you could get the new ones shortened to fit.

will shorten them tomorrow , saw a friend tonight and told me about a place in the next village that makes hydrolic pipes up , and showed me some ally washers with rubber inside , tried one and it was a reasonable fit , so will go over tomorrow and get better fitting ones , will report back when I eventually get chance to fit them , still trying to spray tub up to get some panels on , cannot put cooler on till cage is on as it has extreme wing kit on front which attaches to main cage , so all mechanical work is mounting up as I cannot get time to spray panels , have done bulkhead though , put new footwells in sprayed up in orchid white .

sounds good, the alloy/rubber washer/seals are known as Dowty seals, I use some at work on aircraft. I'm sure they will be more than satisfactory for the intended use.
