Can anyone remind me which of the two lines out of the Ford AOD is the outy & which is the return line? I'd bump her over & see which one fluid blows out of but i'm in the middle of an ignition/distributer upgrade.
The lines exit the AOD just above the filler tube hole, one above the other
thanks

I do have an AOD but I don't really know which is the return and which is not. I run a B+M super cooler and thats it. So it really didn't make any difference which was which to me.

Sorry I couldn't be more help,

In theory, it shouldn't matter which line is which if you are using a cooler independent of the radiator.

It would make some difference if you were using the radiator cooler but I doubt if that much since it is in the "cold" side of the radiator. The only difference I can see is if you are using an external fluid filter.

Actually, it does make a difference to me independant cooler or not as i want the hot fluid coming in at the top of my cooler & exiting back to the tranny through the bottom, like the rad, you know?

Unfortunately my Super cooler is mounted with the lines both coming in at the bottom. One at the right and one at the left. If I would have done one top and bottom I would want to know too.

Sorry,

I just tried to figure it out by looking at a AOD assembly manual I have, but it's not clear. It looks like the fluid is discharged out of the lower port and returns to the upper.

I'd just stick the distributor in and bump it over a see what pukes. Or you could install the lines and swap them later if you need to.
