Welcome to the forum!

Sorry for the problems!

Can an image please be posted? My A/T fitting is flush to the tank, nothing to kink.

One possibility is to NOT use the A/T cooler in the radiator and just use an external A/T cooler in-front of the radiator.

Is the radiator holding antifreeze w/o leaking w/ this nipple problem?
