Help with oil cooler hose/line

1989 300e
I need to replace the right transmission cooler hose. The one currently on the car has an elbow fitting and all replacements I've found are straight fitting. The radiator was replaced in 06 by the previous owner with a Behr model 210881 with oil cooler (indicates to be for a 300ce). Looks to me like a straight fitting hose would require a serious bend, just doesn't look like the right thing to do.
I'm wondering if the elbow fitting was abandoned and replaced with the straight one. Or does the radiator have something to do with the type of hose I need?
I'm concerned about buying the wrong part on the web and I'm 80 miles away from civilization (and also 70 and totally confused at this point). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.[B]
