In the "function over form" department, I just used the through-the-radiator plastic zip ties and mounted it directly to it. Apologies for the poor picture quality. I did a much nicer installation on my Cougar because I cared more. But here's the wagon.

I pulled a tank off a newer, plastic and aluminum radiator, and the trans cooler was laughable. I deemed it unnecessary at that point.

You can run to the radiator cooler first and then threw the auxiliary cooler to the trans or if you a big enough cooler use just that. 175 deg and under your doing good.
