coolant filter question.

I just got my coolant filter in and have an installation question. this may be dumb but hear me out. The one connection goes to the line coming off the heater core right?? the line that you are tying into comes from the water pump and into the heater core, flows through the filter and back into the degas bottle. is that right? I just want to make sure that i understand what is going on.

It goes from the heater hose just in front of the valve to the filter out of the filter to the line going back to the degasing tank at the radiator.

I also have a question.....I tapped a pressure gauge into the empty hole in my sinister coolant filter and every time I open the hood it shows no pressure? I'm guessing its a bad gauge or is the system not always pressurized? I'm going to check again after pulling my 14 ft enclosed trailer home today and see what happens.

should be doing something productive....

Using both heater hoses will be more efficient than having the output tie into the small 3/8" line coming out the top of the radiator....If the filter and fittings are large enough to flow more than the 3/8" line then your system will filter more volume faster than most others out there.

Will not make a whole lot of difference as the filter head passage is sized to be just a small flow

That would depend on the filter and filter head....The specs of which we have neither. Which is why I said "If the filter and fittings are large enough to flow more than the 3/8" line" Instead of just @ss-u-me~ing

If you tapped into both heater hoses would the flow go the right way when the heater is off, or would you get heat off the heater core in the cab?? I moved my heater valve back toward the fire wall and put the T in it's place so the hose would not rub or ride on anything.
