Transmission oil return line from radiator

I am in the process of installing a aux transmission oil cooler. I need to know which one is the return line from the radiator to the transmission? I would think the aux tranny cooler is install after the built in radiator oil cooling system correct? Any pics would help greatly.

Thanks

I believe its the line that's on the passenger side of the radiator. That's the way I hooked mine up

Are you going to install a transmission temp gage in the line also? I was wondering if this would be the easiest time and place to install one...

Nope, just not the gauge this time. Maybe later.

Great idea...how did you get that installed? Did you have to removed the A/C condenser and radiator?

If I just use the tranny cooler...how or where do i put it in from?

I removed the bolts that hold both the ac condenser and radiator leaned them back towards the engine carefully not to hit the fan and slid it in between the grill and mounted to the 2 little bars
