Looks similar to the radiatior I bought. Had to make my own brackets to fit but it keeps my engine nice and cool with no issues.

It was narrower than original but thicker. I want to say about an inch or 2 narrower on the sides.

Still had plenty of room for the fan.

Mine is a 1977 b210 so not sure if the dimensions would be different if any.

I'm running one now. Works quite well. Very narrow though, but 3 core vs the 2 core.

The old rad is out of a 210 with A/C and is much larger than stock. The "hole" is a cut out panel I removed. The radiator is actually a 1200 rad and other than the holes being off a 1/4 inch on one side pretty much bolted in. If the car was a stock 1974 B210 it would have be a very good fit.

The original stock radiator is basically undersized for the hole that it mounts to and does not come with a shroud. Overall a very weird and suboptimal setup. This bolted into the original holes for the most part.

There was a larger aluminum one from China on ebay that looked more like a 210 radiator but they refuse to respond to any questions about size or anything and I can't find it anymore. I honestly don't understand why these 1200 sized tiny radiators are  everywhere but none in 210 or b210 size since the 210 radiator will fit in any of all 3 cars and cools way better! Someone NEEDS to make an aluminum 210/B310 radiator!

Update......this is what a got and its working like champ . Fitment could be better the gap between the core support & rad is kinda big (Last Pic).

I just installed a Griffin aluminum radiator in my 620, and it's made in the US, and only cost $175.

P/N 1-25181-XS

 

Was a little more to the adaptation, but well worth it.

I'm getting ready to by one of these for my race coupe. I've been using a Sentra one but the issue is the airflow through the core support isn't great. The other thing is the good old plastic cooling 4 blade fan does a great job, it's light and always work. There really isn't a need for an electric fan. 

 

afracer, the reason why they do the 1200 radiators is that Sunny 1200s are way more popular to modify than the B210/120Y.

Yes but the b210 and b310 radiators have always been a bolt on upgrade for 1200s, so if an aluminum b310 radiator was made, it would fit in all 3 generations!

Datsun 1200 wiki, Phil installed a chrysler Lebaron radiator to cool his A15.  Lebaron radiator has the inlet outlet tubes in the right place, but not sure about dimensions and fit.

Just an update now that I've got a 1000 miles or so on the radiator in a few different temperatures and with a long drive to Madras in the heat for several hours.

 

These radiators seem to work very well. I'm running NO shroud and a 7 blade fan with the viscous clutch and it never gets even barely hot even beating on it.

 

If anything I may have to block it off slightly during the winter as the engine struggles to get up to temperature.

That is how my B310 runs if it's anything under a 90 degree heat index outside; struggles to hit normal op temp. But if it's above 90 on the freeway with AC going it'll heat up a bit higher than I like. This is with clutch fan, shroud, 12" electric fan on condenser, and  stock radiator. Here in Arkansas it's routinely 110+ heat index in summer every day. Next year I'll probably get a custom aluminum one made.

Welp it looks like my time has come also.  Broke down and bought a 1200 aluminum radiator since my b210 now leaks.  Once I have the 1200 rad in I will see about getting the old copper one repaired.  Sucks only having the one car.
