How would I convert a radiator from a 1987 Buick regal to my 1991 Cadillac eldorado? And can I 8 run the he oil and tranny cooling lines with one hose each instead two each?

no you must have two lines for each . one is oil and one is transmission fluid, they both have a supply and return line. As for radiator yes use special lines.

Cooling transmision lines

Make sure that you use thee correct tools when removing the hose. Important to keep in mind that these lines seize up so you may need to heat the fittings.
When installing new line, good idea to use a little anti-seize and then top off transmission fluid with vehicle running and it has reached operating temperature.

New tranny in my 92 ssei now it has tranny fluid in the rad ???????

The transmission and engine are there own entities. Unfortuantly the radiator in some vehicles cool the tranny fluid. Its possable when the coolant lines were disconnected from the transmission or from the radiator, the seal was broken on the radiator where the line goes in from the radiator, so you wont see it because its internal. This will allow trans fluid to enter into the radiator. Be careful with trans fluid mixed with the coolant may cause engine damage. Your solution to the problem if this is infact the source would mean replacing the radiator, if you do this be sure to flush the coolant system to rid trans fluid.

Need to replace the transmission cooling lines from radiator to transmission. Are the ends just screwed into the radiator or are they pressed

they are a type of quick connect fitting. There is a special tool just for these types of fittings. If you remove the plastic cover that goes over the fitting you will see a metal clip in a groove. You can use a small pick to carefully remove the clip (they go flyin and get lost easily but they are available from your local GM dealer or parts store). Once the clip is removed you will be able to pull the line out of the radiator/transmission fitting.

Reinstall the clip after you remove the line. The new line will slide in and click into place.
