Default Oil Cooler OIL FLOW Direction

Does anyone know the oil flow direction of this 240T adapter? Which port is IN and which is OUT?
Thanks, Dave B.

The 1981 New Car Features greenbook has a nice diagram.

Awesome. Great diagram. Thank you.
I installed an in line thermostat between that and the cooler because the factory one must be stuck open. It's been really slow to warm the oil for a while. The instructions called for specific routing.

Another reason to use the coolant cooled one.

I believe mine is stuck too, because the oil never really heats up. Just haven't confirmed it.

The rumor was that they last longer being in a pressurized environment, but most of the time its sitting without the engine running, so who knows?

I have a 1985 New Car Features Greenbook and found this diagram for the B230FT. So I'll add that here for future reference.
