A couple weeks ago I got into an accident in my 97 accord causing the front end of my car to bend in a bit. This in turn caused one of the plastic tubes on the top tank to break off making a hole. I've been working hard to get back on my feet after some unfortunate circumstances so I'm low on cash. I wanted to know possible inexpensive and efficient options for fixing this problem. I've seen people post that you can possibly replace the top tank at a cheaper price, but unfortunately can not seem to locate a place that carries them. I've also been considering a used radiator from a junked car, though I've been having difficulties finding one, is that advisable? I appreciate the time taken to read this post, and am extremely grateful for any help.

I also wanted to know if there were any other models that may share this radiator size and type, possibly making parts easier to attain. Thank you agian.

The most cost effective way is to replace the radiator, the DENSO 221‑3200 is $50 on Rock Auto and Amazon. Can not get much cheaper than that.

I have one for my 97 Accord, it is Chinese made. No problems with it. Easy to install
