That what I thought, but the Radiator manufacturer told me, I had to purchase the plugs from them. I try to search online but nothing comes up. I am also assuming the adapter are from ford.

I Am purchasing a new Radiator. My selection, has a choice. With 4 cooler port or no cooler ports. The old radiator has 2 cooler ports, one outlet and two inlet (1.5 & 1 inch). I am trying too find a off the shelf item. I don't know the standard sizes of the ports.

If your 95 is an auto then you need the one with two cooler ports
4 cooler ports would be a chevy LOL LOL LOL
Seriously none of our explorers use a 4 cooler port radiator, not sure why they list it

If your truck is a 5 speed then you do not need cooler ports

The oil cooler is for the automatic transmission
Your new radiator should come with the correct fittings to thread directly to the trans cooler lines in the truck
If it does not (they usually do?) then you can remove the fittings from your old radiator

You want the DUAL CORE radiator do not get the single core unit, from the factory all 95 automatics came with dual core
