Ahhhhh.... I was wondering about that when I installed it. Thanks for pointing that out.

No problem on that because I just put mine on and had a hard time deciding which way to go. Luckily it only fit the one way after I grabbed 2" of heater core line from auto zone .. wouldn't stretch back by the firewall luckily I guess

Looks like I need to swap them around on the 2 truck I installed them on. We haven't had any problems the way they are,but would rather have them in the proper way

From what I understand, behind the heater control valve the system is not always open so you are not always getting flow. What I do not understand if that it is when the heater is off, or when the AC is cranked on high. Either way, with the "T" in front of the valve you will always have flow regardless what your heating/cooling system is doing. Like I said I had it wrong first, I just then switched the position on the "T" and the heater control valve.

Just got mine on, no issues unless you count getting the plastic OEM cap off. Looks good and no leaks!

Were you able to use a socket for this? I tried on mine, but it wouldn't work. I would rather the socket not fit than it leak, but wish I could use a socket none the less.
