The rear line is the return. On my junk, the return comes out of the top of the radiator, while the send line goes into the tranny cooler before heading off to the radiator. I don't know if that's the stock setup but it's how it is.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

Didn't want to post the same question again..

On my XJ the rear line goes to the top of the radiator and the front goes to the bottom of the radiator...

I understood that the line connected to the front of the transmission is suppose to go to the top of the radiator...

Hope someone could clear this up..

I've traces the lines many, many times and somthing seems wrong...

Thanks...

I just left it with the same route. Pump side on the bottom, return side on top.

Eliminated the radiator all together. It's connected straight to the cooler, stand-alone.

Just weird everyone posting that the return line should be on the bottom of the radiator.. Even the FSM indicates the same...

When flushing the system, I disconnected the top hose, replaced it with a short piece. Then to an empty gallon jug. Just repeated until the old was out.

On the late models, I know my 00 the return is the top one. When I did my cooler I changed it to the bottom, then to the cooler and back to tranny. Phil
