Default Oil Cooler Hose Routing

Any of you guys got some decent pics of the oil cooler hose routing in the engine bay?
Basically, I know the correct connections but I'm unsure of the routing - and there's not much room when using -12 hose.
There used to be some useful pics on the Kirkham website but this seems to have been deleted. In fact quite a lot of useful information seems to have been deleted from their site recently?

For info., my engine is a 427 S/O with original spec. remote oil filter block plate and filter head.

Any help would be very much appreciated

Default oil flow lines with cooler

on a 427 with remote oil filter and cooler, the flow goes from the lower hole on the adaptor plate of the block to the lower hole on the oil filter housing. Upper line goes to the cooler on the r/s and the l/s hooks back up to the block adaptor. You can test this by pulling the distributor and cranking it to get oil pressure. You can check for leaks also at this time. If you have no pressure after 10-15 second with manual turning of the pump drive, you have the oil filter housing lines reversed. Good size lines. Rick L. Ps for line running, use clamps every 12-16" and have easy bends in the lines. The less 90 degree fittings the better. Get High Flow fittings also.
