GM made it easy to change radiator on an s-1o. You dont even have to remove the fan. Radiator came with new connections for trans cooler, but not for oil cooler. But doesn't matter, because the new connections are poorly milled anyway. Burrs left on the groove for the ring clip prevent the hose from going in all the way. Used all the connections from my old radiator. But you can't beat the price.

Comments about ToughOne or Ready-Rad Radiator:

Fit perfect. Read the U tube installation instructions and they were right on. You have to remove the fan. Not hard used a wrench and a hammer. Really worked great. If you start the lower fitting for the oil cooler first it is easier. You have to shift the radiator slightly to get the one fitting started. My Truck had air conditioning and you need two people, one to hold the hoses out of the way in getting the new radiator in and the old radiator out. Getting the radiator to seat in the lower rubber gromets is not too bad. Easier to put the lower oil fittting on before putting the gromets into place. The other item is watch the air pump hose. It goes inbetween the two oil cooler hoses and if you miss that you can disconnect the hose on the bottom of the air filter/pump and reattach it. The quick tie that hold the air tube to the plastic shroud is almost impossible to get off with out breaking. Added a zip tie after to replace the push in one piece hose holder. Getting the one fitting hooked up was a challenge but we got it.

            I was looking for an OEM replacement for my radiator and found this great deal that included 15% off, free shipping and a $25 online gift card. I placed the order late on a Monday night and it was delivered to my house on Thursday! The radiator fit perfectly and the Jimmy has been running cool with no problems, no overheating and no leaks! Hats off to Advance Auto Parts for carrying such a good product replacement. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone in need of a new radiator.

              Radiator fit perfectly and had no issues aside from the ORing seating with the oil coolant lines. Didn't want to fit/seat properly and had leaks on both the upper and lower after install and had to remove lines twice to stop the leaks. Lines were new as well.

              Oil fittings were different and had to be changed out. They were clipped on. although I am a DYI'er I was not familiar on how to remove them. With a little luck and some information from my local advance parts tech I was able to change them.
