The oil from the cooler is the tranny's lube supply, so block those at
your
own peril...

My freshly rebuilt TH350 shifted sluggishly when cold and I only live in
California and had only an oil-to-water cooler. If I lived someplace
where it got really cold, I would worry even more. Ford transmissions
also do not use an overrunning clutch for the 2-3 shift like GM ones,
instead, they apply the direct clutch at the same time as they release
the 2nd gear band. If fluid viscosity is incorrect due to being cold,
the shift could either slip due to both elements being released at the
same time, or bind due to both being applied at the same time.

All this is meant to say that where it is really cold a thermostat would
probably be in order. Along with a temperature gauge, of course.

BTW, the tranny has an internal pressure relief type valve for cooler
byass in case the cooler gets plugged the tranny will still recieve
lube, anthough I would hate to use this full time with a thermostat.

As usual, a long winded reply to a simple question.
