The fuel drain should be fine as is.
The oil drain looks really terrible.
Absolutely terrible

<p>This is the oil drain solution Andrew came up with. it has that long curlyq in it because it actually went around the steering shaft.</p>

<p>Even FM's spot is going to be putting a lot of line running parallel to the ground. Which garrett advises against.</p><p>I think you need one of the compact 45 degree fittings on both ends.</p>

Short answer: yes.

Long answer: Wrapping your oil line around like that is not good. I've built short stainless braided oil drain lines for low mount setups and, while certainly more difficult to install than would be with a higher BEGI/FM location, I don't remember them being particularly troublesome. IIRC, I've gone more forward than you.

But...I've never had to live with a low mount setup...Huster or Savington would have better suggestions on that one. They had their kits in and out a bunch of times.

Yeah, I can kinda sorta see a way for it to be downhill with more tight bends or smaller tube or something.

<p>I think they were trying to use the standard MSM bung in the pan which causes some of the problem. I think moving it further forward would work.</p><p>Can I put it lower in the pan, or would that cause drainage issues? Like, can i put it towards the front but down low?</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>I don't know how to tag people... Paging Savington!</p>

Follow FMs location, it's really forward and low for AC compatible setups. Ryan's oil pan has dopples old drain location I think it's in his CR build thread.

And yes, sacrifices were made to keep that stock drain location.

I used tight radius -8AN fittings. one swivel, one not swivel. The not swivel were more compact, but at some point they weren't available. Russell brand.

That oil drain is the very definition of what you do NOT want in an oil drain.

<p>Yes, you need to get non-swivel fittings Ed. They exist, but some shopping is needed. Push-loc fittings are also much shorter.</p>

Got the brakes all mounted and bled. Pedal feels great. Next I'll start installing interior stuff (seat mounts, carpet, roll bar, hvac stuff maybe?) and prep the block for the oil pan to go back on.
<br />
<br />Ordered the ac delete crossover tube too, and fuel return conversion is figured out. Can I leave the charcoal canister junk out of the engine bay and just cap it at the rear canister?
<br />
<br />Ben (Yank) is going to weld a new bung on. I'll shorten the oil return line and I'm quite sure it will work nicely. Better than before, and it did work fine before.
<br />
<br />Oi. So many details to still figure out.

Oo! good progress is good! I won't repeat the commentary about the oil drain.

Please take lots of pics of what you end up doing around the fuel tank and filter with the fuel line stuff, I'm trying to prepare myself for the insanity.

<p>The way I have it routed is really, really, REALLY simple. I'll take some pics.</p>

My primary concerns (because I haven't take it apart yet) are that swapping the stock lines back in will be a nightmare, and the lines I'm going to have to rig in there are going to chafe on everyfuckingthing and burn my car to the ground.

But that might just be me.

<p>Its literally an extra NB fuel line. The fuel line clips have a provision for it already for some reason lol.</p>

Yes, I know about THAT part, I'm the one who recommended he save the main fuel line from the wrecked NB tub for this project I'm more interested in the stuff between the tank and the 2 hardlines.

<p>I have thought about abrasion. I will probably pull and check it this winter after the couple track days and few thousand miles I'll be driving, but I really don't expect to find anything. For one, this hose is seriously beefy, and for another, there's just not much for it to chafe on.</p>

Yep, that's exactly the kind of stuff I'm talking about. I want to see how other people are doing it so I can over complicate it and figure out how to spend 2x$ for the same result.

These are good things to know. What fittings and what hose specifically? I've been trying to figure out if I can get away with this and not do -6AN errywhere and still sleep at night
