Aluminum Radiator Question

My radiator sprung a leak so I ordered a replacement aluminum one. I just opened the box and noticed the it has inlets on the bottom. My oem one does not have these inlets, what are they for?

Optional internal cooler, usually for trans

Yep for a manual trans. The cooler lines go in there. If you don't have a manual don't use them. It won't hurt anything to leave them empty. I'd try and put a plug in them though. Keeps mud wasps from building nests in there and whatnot.

I have an external trans cooler. Do I have to plug them? Also, do they all aluminum radiators come like that?

Sorry, also what size and what kind of plugs (brass, plastic, etc.)? One more questions, what does the 2 row mean?

Might as well plug them, just in case you wanna use it later.
I'd use brass.
2 row refers to the cooling passes. Goes side to side twice

Thank you much! By any chance, do you know the thread size for the plugs?
