I just went to local Fastenal store. I got 2 brass 90 degree female I think 3/8in. thread fittings. 2 3/8in. barbed and 2 1/2in. barbed with 3/8in. thread. I can't remeber every detail. You will need 1ft of 1/2in hose and I used 7ft 3/8in hose. I think from the bottom of the cooler to the end of your new fitting should be 3 or 3 1/2in. Whole bunch of hose clamps. I double hose clamped every fitting, that is up to you. When you put your fittings on the cooler, you will need both of the 3/8 ends facing the passenger side. I then used what was left of the old and new hose, split it and wrapped around the lines anywhere they touched frame, radiator ect. to keep from premature failure. I also stil use the oil/water cooler in the radiator. You will have to modify the top mounts on 6.0 cooler or your bolts will not line up. If you look at your old cooler you will see how much shorter the mounts are compared to the 6.0. The 6.0 has a much broader design and will not let it sit down in the slots. It was definatly worth the effort, since I changed it I can't get my temp. above 140 and that was 100degree outside pulling 16K.
