OK, I took a closer look, on the other side of the trany line fitting on the cooler.
The fitting is just clamped on the line on a half moon type of fitting, it clamps on the radiatior trany line inlet nut, looks VERY easy to undo, just pull the fitting out and the line should come out, unless there is something I do not get. I did not receive the cooler yet, so I will wait until I am ready to do it.
It looks like the trany line is just inserted in the rad fitting and it is locked in by the plastic half moon type locking fitting. I do not thing I need any tool, I see the line where it gets in the rad.
What are you planning on doing with your old radiator? If don't care about what happens to your old rad, you can remove the fittings with a wrench and cut the fittings off the lines.
If you want to remove them the proper way, you'll need the quick release tool you speak of. The first of the two links you posted above, is the correct tool you'll need. The white "half-moons" you speak of, are just safety guards to prevent the lines from backing out accidentally.
Thanks Mike, yes the rad will be junked, so I will do like you said, unscrew and cut. I read from another post NOT to unscrew from the new RAD, you can loose the inside rad!!
Now I have a problem, It cost $267 just in shipping to Canada for the bullet proof cooler, so 600+ for a cooler is out of my budget. The dealer wants $499 for OEM and I have a price here for a Jobber, 350 plus 100 installation. The jobber is 2 years warranty, it is plactic top and bottom too.
I cannot really wait, it drips quite a bit. I will unscrew the cap while waiting for decision so not too much pressure is applied.
