Radiator core support interchangability

Will a core support off a 91 work on a 93-94?

Is there any reason why a guy couldn't take a 96-97 OBS gas core and cut and lengthen it for the diesel radiator? Or is there a radiator width difference too?

People have done that but not everyone has a welder or the know how to fab it up.

I do happen to have a welder... maybe I'll get creative one of these days. Being in the South has a distinct advantage of having lots of zero-rust vehicles in the junkyards.

Any idea how much? Or better yet, measurements for both the length and width differences?
