New (but old) kid on the block. this forum seems similar to the Toughbook forum in format. I look forward to learning and hopefully sharing in some areas on this forum. Have some experience with Mustang 5.0 police versions and caprice police 9C1's with mechanical upgrades and just purchased a 95 YJ Rio Grande I4 auto with 129K on the clock. Went and did a dash removal to get to swapping in a working(lightwise) instrument gague(shorted out ribbon cable wiring harness) , a brembo front rotor replacement with ceramic pads and just got in a Champion 3 tube alum radiator I was hoping to install. That's when I encountered the problem of the auto trans oil cooler line hookup incompatibility. It has the new style quick detach coupling with the external added auxillary trans oil cooler as well as the bottom tank mounted oil cooler. The end of it fitted into the old rad with a 1/8" npt fitting and the new rad has the inverted flare 3/8" female end. Supplied with the rad was corresponding nipple connector that many would just probably just use trans rated rubber hose to clamp and hack together. That doesn't appeal to me and was wondering if you guys knew of an adapter that would mate with the inverse flare 3/8" end on the rad side and allow the use of the the stock trans oil cooler lines with the 1/8" npt thread end. If anyone has like a dorman number or item number or website or seller that has what I feel would be a more substantial fix here please enlighten these old ears..many thanks in advance........Driller
