No, take it back and get the correct radiator. The mounts are different

I believe the part I was talking about is my air conditioner conderser and my buddy cut the lines on it not knowing what he was doing taking out my radiator. Do I need to re hook this up in order for the new radiator to work and is the other small radiator looking thing for the powersteering and brake fluid cooling?

No, you can use the the radiator without the ac condenser.

Is there a way to replace the lines with out replacing the aluminum tubes the lines run into on the condenser?

Directly out of the condeser in between the two aluminum hard lines and thought they had to be cut to remove the radiator

Does not sound like much of a repair shop. You will have to replace both lines.
