easiest way is do it like a glide, take the pump apart, you will see the pump inlet and outlet cavities in the pump casting drill and tap each side for 3/8 pipe, install nipples, then after the trans is in the car run a line from outlet to your ball valve, then from the valve to the nipple on the inlet side. when valve is opened no pressure close it and away ya go. 1 caution do not let the car run with the valve open for long periods as no fluid circulates to lubricate the trans at this time, use it only to take off.

We used the tci dummy converter and the valve body that dumps on its own .It works really well,too bad they made it illegal for this season!
