There are two shallow U channels w/rubber pads, the bottom of the radiator fits into. The top of the rad is held by clamps that are bolted to the top of the rad support. Core mounts are directly to the face of the rad support.

Your radiator' goes saddle mounted on the rubber bushings that fit inside the bolt-on supports. The top mounts are the same design.
