Radiator replacement question

OK y'all, I bought a new radiator from AutoZone and apparently it's a universal Lude fit. It has two fittings for hoses or whatever coming out of the bottom, like a tranny cooler line or something. I have a 5 speed so no cooler lines anywhere and the power steering has it's own cooler line. Does anybody know if these are just extra lines for something and if they're not needed should be capped off? I have a 91 4WS 5 speed by the way.
Thanks
Jason

thats is a cooler tank for auto ludes... it wont hurt anything but it just hooks up like normal except you have a tank at the bottom.... i really dont like to have one of those on a 5spd just for the fact it takes up useful area that could have a few more rows insteak of the tank..just my opinion, but yeah it hooks up just how it is on your car so no worries.

I figured as well so I went ahead and dropped it in. Waiting for a fuel pump strainer to arrive so I can install the new pump and fire this bad boy up for the first time. Still have to align the driver side headlight bucket to prevent interference with the hood and then get the carpet and seats steam cleaned to help remove the light cigarette odor but other than putting some radiator fluid and new gas in I'm pretty much there. Well, except a new paint job but that's further down the road for now.
