that makes scene for cooling purposes but i don't think it would loose pressure or anything like that.

thats good, it the PROPER way to do T' lines for fast bleeding.

and for the others in this thread loop order makes NO difference.... i don't know why people keep forgetting that.

fine you could get an extra 1/2 or even 1 degree lower temps, but if it means extra tubing or routing then it becomes moot. you should know enough to over rad anyhow.

makes scenes.

I would suggest this, if only because you avoid a sharp 90 degree angle with your T. You can manipulate it and move it around if you want, but if you have the T act as a 0 degree fitting instead of a 90, you'll have less restriction.

I agree with this..

I've always put my T-Lines with the top of the T inline and the leg for the fillport. The 90 degree angle, even on the suck side, can cause upflow on the fill line as well restriction getting around the 90.

Also, in having it topside T down you have a straight path in the loop causing less restriction as well a natural vacuum to draw new fluid from the fillport line.

Of course, IMO only..

if you have a strong pump, like he does, that 90 does little to the flow. the faster bleeding time if worth the small drop in flow.

Me to, that's the last place you want any kind of restriction is right before the pump.

Question about the orientation of the T-line: Should the Fill port be the nub at a right angle to the others, so that the fluid flows right though rather than needing to make a 90 degree turn?

EDIT: Darn me for not reading everything, and not realising that Ira-k answered my question one post above

Yes. so an upside down T instead of a -|
