Tranny Lines in/out Radiator Flush?

Doing a tranny swap with converter and using a can of Line/Cooler flush.

What line going into the Powerglide is the "Feed" line (where it connects to tranny)?...top or bottom one?

The PG is working fine but going to flush lines/radiator cooler since the new tranny (TH50) & TC have been rebuilt and currently fluid dry.

Re: Tranny Lines in/out Radiator Flush?

Well after asking Dr Google....and getting opposite answers the "majority" of them say the upper port is the "return" aka "feed" line from the radiator. The picture says #9 is Return. If anyone knows otherwise, please reply



I will check to see if the lower line coming out of radiator is connected to the upper port of the PG as, according to google, the PG ^ 350 have the same port orientation in terms of return

Top line on radiator is return to trans as GM designed in filling the cooler, any cooler, from the bottom up for removing air pockets.
Use the whole can of cleaner.
Before installing T/conv onto input shaft, tilt at 45 degrees, and fill as much as you can, with ATF.
Then lube the t/conv snout with ATF, then install t/conv onto input shaft.
Once trans installed, add a couple qts to the pan and crank it up.
Then after filling, run trans through gears, recheck level again. Top off, if needed.

Re: Tranny Lines in/out Radiator Flush?

Thanks Everett2390

I did all the above re: TC & line cleaner. Used compressed air to flush cleaner. Tranny is in and will finish up tomorrow. Been a few years since I did a trans swap.....ouch. Jackstands but I do have a tranny jack

Should have the Shiftworks part next day or two so won't start car until I get that in

X member was.....difficult to get out. Possible the floorboards have sagged some in 52 years but a BFH got it out

Tranny lines needed minimal massaging. Will put the vac modulator line in tomorrow after I cut and bend the end to go to PS of tranny

Will be nice to have a real 1st gear...

Re: Tranny Lines in/out Radiator Flush?

Good job, No, floors don't sag - by design, the floor is cupped over the crossmember.
Yes, you do have to use a Ford tuning tool in removing one corner of the member.
I made room for mine to come in/out as the floor is covered by the seat chassis.
Attach cooling lines before the final touch-up onto block, attach lines by hand when low enough to get to, then wrench in place and install, or install trans then use a crowsfoot wrench. Good luck
