Hi guys. I have a quick radiator installation question - I searched the site but couldn't find an answer. This is dealing with a direct replacement radiator for a two row, auto tranny setup. My question is how much should I tighten the fittings that install into the radiator for the tranny cooler lines? I'm not talking about the tranny cooler lines themselves, but the fittings that actually screw into the radiator tank.

I appreciate any info.

i just tightened mine till they felt like they were tight.... just do it and test it, if it isnt tight and it leaks, turn off the truck tighten it and try it again.....

Thanks, Jimabena. That's the method I've used in the past and will again today. I was just curious if there was a rule of thumb like "snug and then tighten 1/2 turn" or something like that.

I appreciate the reply.
