you bought an engine that is older then your car, obviously. looks like you got like an 87 or so engine? they used those old coolant resevoirs then.
you're going to need all the coolant lines off your original engine, since they changed alot about how coolant was routed (the resevoir was on passenger side on your "new" motor but it was on driver side on your original motor).
honestly, i'm not sure what all you'd have to swap going BACK in time as you did, but its going to be pretty much everything.
