    I just want to make sure I get this right since the seller is in no hurry to answer my questions now that they have my money. On this new radiator, i'm trying to figure out which are the inlet and outlet ports for the oil cooler. I had to put in a new radiator because the transmission cooler tank was cracked, and I had to install an oil filter relocation kit because the oil filter adapter isn't machined out for the lines, and I'm really not tryin to spray oil everywhere. I've already had to do 3 oil changes in 7 months due to the enormous amount of necessary repairs it needed. It's a 92 k1500 4x4 by the way

    I swear I already replied to this but without pics. That looks like a mess just waiting to happen. Why not put it back to stock?

    Maybe I’m mis reading....but if your truck did NOT have the oil cooler lines original equipped, why the hell would you mess with adding them??? Most aftermarket rads come with both oil and trans coolers, but you don’t Need to add oil coolers just because the new rad has the option

    Because it's a motor swap, and it hasn't had an oil cooler on it since I got it, and with all of the aftermarket parts in the engine, it definitely needs it.

    There's almost nothing original on this truck except the body and gas tank.
