how come

when you replace an old radiator with a new one exactly the same size the wall brackets will be totally different and the tails will be just that much further apart making connection to the microbore difficult ? ..pain in the rear,,,,,

this was in a static caravan.........AND after ten minutes trying to lift the old radiator off the wall brackets you discover that there are two metal straps from the bottom radiator brakets screwed into the wall that you don't get in a house..........must be to stop the radiators jumping off the wall when the caravan is in transit.....

Maybe its imperial and metric again, or more likely when designing a new item nobody thinks about the poor sod wanting to actual replace an old device with a new one.
Its not just radiators though is it. Have you noticed the sheer number of different light fittings that are all completely different on the size front, ehrn essentially they are the same? Brian
