    hey im swapping my tranny from a th350 to a sm465 and i was wondering does the sm465 have the same cooler lines that go into the radiator that the th350 has?

    thanks,

    No. A standard trans does not have a cooler.

    A SM465 (or any manual) does not have any cooler lines. Just take the ones you have off and blow the fluid out of the radiator and you are good to go.

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    shupach,

    you are aware that the 465 is NOT a direct bolt up. you will have to use a new xcase2tranny adapter as well as a different xcase input shaft. your cross member may also be different, too.
