Angry IDIOT ALERT! Cooling fan replacement

Don't try this at home kids! Replacing my cooling fan, tightening the bolt that holds the tranny cooler to the rad to discover I'm using the WRONG BOLT! It's too long and POKED A HOLE IN THE RAD! By mistake I used the bolt for the electrical connector for the rad wiring. Should've stayed in bed
