Which way does the coolant flow????

I have a 1967 CJ-5 with the Buick Dauntless V-6 engine. I am doing some work on the cooling system and cant figure out which way the coolant flows? Does it flow from the bottom radiator hose into the engine then out the top hose back into the radiator or visa versa? Please help!!

Thanks!

Yes,you got it correct.

Cooler water comes from the bottom of the radiator to the engine.
Hot water flows into radiator from the top from the engine.

YUP, from the bottom via the engine, then to the top of the radiator inlet.

Yup, otherwise you would be sucking air half the time.
