1972 Radiator issues

Hello,

Removed the radiator from my '72 240z (Automatic) this last weekend and dropped in an Aluminum 2 core from MSA. The upper water hoses fit perfectly. The lower passenger side A/T fluid line fit's but the passenger side line doesn't line up with the new radiator (it's ~ 6 inches outboard) Beginning to questions if my original radiator is not factory. Anyone had this issue?

Attached are pics of the old radiator. Here's the link to the new radiator:

Thanks
Nick

Looks like this one to me: Radiator PERFORMANCE RADIATOR 110 fits 74-75 Nissan 260Z

Probably aftermarket OEM replacement

@ NismoPick ... Thanks! I believe you are correct. Sure wish that driver side fitting was ~ 5 inches inboard. Now I need to have a new line made. All it needs is a 10 inch straight line with the appropriate fittings coming off the oil pan bracket. Thanks!
