    And it is amazing. I love mine, every time I look at it, I smile about all the time and frustration it has saved me.
    yep.

    Make sure you put the correct coolant hoses to their correct inlets on the firewall.

    You DO NOT want to try and fix them if you installed them backwards, while the engine is in the car, with the intake manifold on.
    Lol so true. Been there...

    Guess I should order it. $23 for something I'll almost never use :(

    Cool. Will that hold the actual fan clutch? Because holding the water pump isn't going to work because of the belt slippage.

    And what's that tool called?

    Order these and smile every time they come in handy and you thought you didn't need them before...



    That same thin 32mm (IIRC) is quite handy for inner tie rods too. :)

    Can you tell that I didn't have these forever and have already found them incredibly awesome to own. There are better options but these are cheap and 100% for what I need. Found on Amazon.

    You can plug them if you like, but nothing goes through it any more.

    No the lines connect to a closed system inside the rad exclusive to transmission fluid,its basically piping running thru the the rad to transfer heat from the tranny fluid to the coolant.

    A lot of automatics (in all cars) have the radiator cool the transmission fluid. Only difference between a manual radiator and an auto is the provisions for the transmission lines to circulate through it. Just leave those lines off. The manual-specific radiator may/may not have those holes in them.

    I haven't look at the radiator yet but can you elaborate on "leaving the lines empty"?
