cooler mounts

I have seen that style of cooler mounted with the strap style of clamp. the ones that have a metal strap with rubber wrapped around them and they have holes for a bolt or screw to go through for mounting. they fully encapsulate and insulate whatever is in the clamp. you can get them at home depot or a hardware shop if not at the parts store. then just use 2 of those at each end, on the u shaped tubes of your cooler, and then some sort of a shim under the clamp mount to keep the cooler off the mounting surface so it doesn't rub. also, the parts store should be able to fix you up with a fitting that goes into the trans cooler of the rad and has a barbed hose fitting on the opposite end. or use a short piece of steel line that already has the flare on it. those are available at the parts store as well, in many different lengths. if you get the ones with the spring thing on the outside, the spring is used so when the tube is bent it doesn't kink. just push the spring together and then bend the tube. when you are done the spring goes back to it's original shape. if you talk to the tranny shop they would be able to tell you which line comes from the trans as hot fluid and which one goes back as cool fluid. then you could decide if you want the cooler before the rad cooler or after.
keep us posted
