Default Trans intake cooling lines weren't marked!

Hello everyone...I'm new so bear with me...
my just wonderful boyfriend...ha ha...did not mark the cooling intake and outgoing lines when changing the radiator today. So I really need to know which hose goes to which metal tube. I believe the hose towards the passenger side if you're looking at the engine goes to the top as it is the longest. Then the one closer to the driver side would go to the bottom. Can anyone tell me if this is correct as I don't have a transmission temp gauge to let me know if it over heats. I know it makes a difference as they go through the water pump or some type of housing before it then it goes through the radiator then back to the transmission. So if anyone can lead me in the right direction I would certainly appreciate it. I looked at so many YouTube videos and none of them show the proper order of the hoses. In the videos everyone is either too far away or they have removed them without showing it and just saying remove them. Thanks.

the line with the longer metal tube and the high pressure fittings goes on top. The line with the short metal tube and a standard hose clamp goes to bottom

Welcome to CF!

For future reference, it really doesn't matter which way the fluid flows thru the radiator. It's just an internal cooling coil.
