Ok guys, an act of a complete novice. While attempting to replace my oil pan gasket I noticed that my oil cooler lines where soaked with oil and dirt. Being the ever adventureous I removed the lines from the radiator and oil cooler to inspect. Not know the cause of the leak I purchase new ones from NAPA(oring culprit):shakehead. Long story short I didn't mark the locations for the reconnect, can anyone tell me where the inlet and outlet hose connect to radiator from the oil cooler(can't upload pic). Thanks

Novice:runaround:

the engine oil cooler of the radiator is nothing but a line with no direction specific connection...

connect the lines so that they run to from radiator in a way that they don't cross each other or chaffe into other parts..

Thanks for the info. The inlet and outlet on the Oil Cooler itself had me concerned about the line conncections.

The long hose goes to both top fittings and the short on goes to bottom. If you have the quick disconnect fittings, I would replace those too as they house the seal. Should take a 1" socket.

Thanks for the insight. New hoses were purchased and came with new quick cons and clips, however I didn't get new fittings, I may use the old ones which seem to be in good order. Thanks for the assitance guys this has given me grief for a couple of days.
