Best way to do a Transmission line and cooler Flush

Fixing to put a built transmission in my 03(48re), what's the best way to flush the system of the fluid in it now? (looks and smells terrible) I believe that it still has the check ball in the top line to the cooler, what's the best way to get rid of this??

Found this on Dog House Diesel. Rich rocks for putting this info out there in such great detail. This method works fantastic!

Good luck!

may have read that wrong, this is for flushing while trans is in and plan on keeping it in there.

With the old tranny out, flushing the lines with air pressure and solvent is pretty straightforward. Blow solvent out when through.
