Default Radiator Core Support Swap:LMC Truck only has '92 - '98 Model Year Replacement

Really need to change out my Radiator Core Support (for a 31 1/2"wide Radiator) on my '89 F350 Diesel , but can't find a New Replacement. LMC Truck offers one for model years '92 - '98, P/N 43-2868-T. Will this part have all the same Mounting Holes, etc, for Frame Mounts, Fenders, Lights, and Grill?

There are some differences between openings in some of these things. 43-2863 is the LMC part number for an 87-91 diesel F-250. I believe the only difference in the vehicles is payload capacity which would lead me to think suspension only. If you don't want to risk it, here is a link to the site where I bought mine from.

I need the Core Support for a "89 Diesel with AC (31 1/2"Wide x 31"Tall Radiator). The listing you suggested is for the wider radiator only.
Thanks anyways.

Sorry about that. I didn't catch that. I'll keep searching. Everybody sells that same one. One with A/C must be rare. Got my interest peeked.

I'm pretty sure the P/N I need: F1TZ-16138-G is Not offered by anyone as an Aftermarket Replacement, or by Ford. Very hard to find a decent one in the Junk Yards. That's why I'm asking if a Radiator Core Support for a '92 - '98 will bolt up to everything. Thanks again for your help.

$550 PLUS $200 shipping, used. Looks like the interchange is 87-91 F2/3/450 diesel with A/C.

Great, but I can't pay that kind of $$$ for a Farm Truck repair. That's why I'm asking if a '92 - '98 Core Support will work.

Is there a junkyard near by where you can possibly go look at a 92-98 to see what may be different under the hood? Might be easier to make that decision.
