you need to replace your radiator - i had the same problem .

When replacing, seriously consider a copper radiator instead of the aluminum with plastic tanks. Aluminum is not a very good radiator material... just cheap.

If you replace it, get one for a turbo model, they're dual-core and much beefier.
on these ones, do you know if the lower hose come out at an angle or horizontal?
I have a dual core waiting to be put in, but the bottom hose comes out horizontal, rather than angled like on the stock ones.
Is there a different hose used? I haven't found any differences in the parts online yet.

definitly tranny cooler. ignore them. you do not need to cap them off.
ah, I should have thought of that! Hubby just hooked up a new radiator on his '61 Thiokol Snowcat with the tranny cooler (but those inlet/outlets were on the bottom of the radiator he used, so it didn't dawn on me that's what these were).

All cars with an automatic transmission had the cooler.
Which EA82's came with the tranny cooler?
no, not really, but it would make a great engine oil cooler if you could somehow get the tubing right
Oh, ok. (Maybe a stupid question: would there be any point to a tranny cooler on a manual gearbox?)
That may be because you live in Alaska my car still runs them most of the time, with a special copper radiator (copper gives better heat dissipation)
Go with a turbo radiator. I got one from radiator.com for $125 and I haven't had to turn the fans on since.

No, thats definately not the reason.
