Witch radiator did you get?

I would get 2 gallon of coolant
1 gallon of distill water.

I'd suggest picking up a single quart of ATF and just check the level once you have the car up and running and warmed up, *maybe* drive the car around the block but not too much more, then check the level again and top off

I don't know what's recommended but it couldn't hurt to put some of the gas/oil safe (yellow) teflon tape on there

just be careful tightening those down, they snap very very easy and will ruin your day.

Well after an hour of labor approximately its done, took a galon of coolant, 1/4 of quarter of AT fuild and some yellow teflon on the threads of the flare connection just to be sure. Oh and it fit without mods. So far no leaks.
