Help! 200TDI Radiator Installation

This is on a 1992 130. Removed the old radiator, installed the new radiator from Paddock. I made sure to look at the oil intercooler lines/fittings to make sure they looked the same, and they did. Installed the new radiator tonight, turned it on, and oil was spurting all over the place. Could I have missed something? I believe I tightened it down well enough. I am a little afraid that I missed something on the oil couplings and that the one from the previous radiator was slightly different from the one on the new radiator. I could use some guidance here...not really sure where to go from here...

There are two types of radiator to oil line fittings. One type uses o rings the other is a flare type connection.
You will likely need to unscrew the fittings from your old radiator and swap them to the new one so they match up.

Pix. Sent post last night under the stress of doing last minute work on truck before bed and day before movers got to the house. Movers here....do I need a different hose for the fitting that is on this radiator? I thought it looked the same as the previous one.

Yeh the fittings on the new rad are the O-ring type (like air conditioner fittings) and the hoses you have are clearly flare. Either take the adapters off the old rad and put them on the new rad or get new hoses with compatible ends.

The workshop manual did not mention any rubber ring or using a thread sealant...didn’t notice one in previous radiator...am I missing those part or methodology in order to achieve a tight seal?

Smh. Old radiator trashed. Do you know if the old coupling fittings can be ordered? Is the better route to change the oil lines?

Bought two new NTC3858 couplings that should do the trick. Appreciate your comments!

You can order the fittings , Trevor at rovahfarm has em .

For now to get you so you can move the truck loop a rubber hose from line to line and clamp it . I wouldn't drive it far like this tho in hot weather

Trevor is on a well deserved hiking trip in the Maine woods...tried calling but he’s still away! Happy for him though. Was able to source the parts from somewhere else that had them priced well and could get them out to me quick.

Got my new couplings. Previous couplings did not have thread sealant/tape. Should they. Apply them to the new ones?
