Howie! Oh I know you know!
I am actually bypassing the radiator completely and just running it through a good size cooler. http://store.summitracing.com/partde...410ERL&FROM=MG
Once I crawled under the car figuring out which line went where was pretty obvious. Everyone was right the lines are preformed in a was so you know which is the top and which is the bottom. They were originally disconnected and run through a smaller tranny cooler so I was worried I'd have a hard time figuring them out since they weren't connected to the radiator...but no worries...thanks for the replies guys!
So now 've got a much bigger cooler in there with a 10 inch puller fan. The lines are running like you said Howie! The bottom trans line runs into my cooler and then back out to the tranny. I noticed a directional flow arrow on the cooler so just thought to play it safe, besides I was also trying to wire in a temp sender so teh fan only comes on at a certain temp.
Right now I need to find a 12v signal to trigger the relay to the fan that is only on when the engine is running.
As for cooling the trans fluid too much...I have a Yank 3200 SS converter and (without the fan hooked up yet) temps got up to 196 after about 45 mins of "spirited: driving and stayed there. Though to be fair I didn't end up in stop and go traffic which is where the fan would have really helped.
I'm going to add to another previous post about trying to find a 12v trigger. So if any one knows...please fill me in
