    Looks like its a skyline one possibly. The pins should be offset slightly for the SX brackets. Mine was the same. I can't remember who made it (eBay special). But I made new brackets and it's been fine. I also got a partial refund

    HI,

    Thanks for your message, i'm not sure you know if there are actually any differences with an auto and manual rad.... correct me if i'm wrong like but i thought they fitted both.

    I dont think they run a different rad like the r32 models do.

    Automatic radiators have a transmission cooling tube fitted in the lower tank with 2 take offs,
    one feeding hot ATF to the rad lower tank,the other returns cooled ATF to the slush box, its not the most efficient of coolers btw
    An external remote cooler surface to air will work a lot better and add fluid volume,like a tiny FMIC mounted in good air flow
    can even add a leccy fan behind the cooler on a toggle switch or with a temp sensor fitted in the gearbox to cooler feed line
    for stuck in traffic situations, Hayden coolers quote an auto gearbox will last at least twice as long with better cooling
    Heat is the enemy of many things
    the rads are same dimensions its just the missing lower tank cooler is the difference between them
