C6 cooling lines...

Just wondering, is it possible to just use high temp/pressure rubber hoses for my cooling lines for my '71 C6, with flared fittings?

Also, which lines are which? I have 2 threaded holes on the passenger side of the tranny and I'm assuming that the forward most hole is the "sending" line and that the back most hole is the return line??? It's been years since I tore down this engine tranny combo, that I've forgotten where some of the parts go

yes I have used fuel line to connect the hard line to a extra cooler, it's not the best but you can do it, but remember rubber line causes more friction or restriction than hard line but I use stainless braided line on my race truck
yes the front is the sending line, and the rear is the return
