Differences in radiator for E series Falcon auto vs manual

Just had my Sprint's radiator changed to the EF/EL style to accommodate a planned swap to the factory electric fans and noticed the radiator shop had used an automatic radiator with the fittings for transmission cooling. Does this mean I have lost some of the total capacity of the radiator when compared to my original manual radiator?

The all radiators came with the auto cooler from the factory.

What is the difference between the EA/D and EF/L? apart from the lower radiator hose diameter?

I had mine replaced also.[Broken tank spout]The original was without the trans-cooler. But the new one has and the elect. fans bolted straight in only required the small bolts [n9 ?] for the attachment at top.No difference in size of rad..Geeeze those fans pull some amps!!

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

The radiator fitting for the supply tank hose has a 90deg bend requiring a different hose. Otherwise as ebxr8240 mentioned they have fittings for the electric fans.
