Default Oil Drain Length

I have a 1.6 BEGI manifold and a Nissan T25 w/ A/C (no PS). Can anyone tell me how long of a steel braided line I need to reach the oil pan straight fitting?

Thanks.

I have BEGI 1.8 and T25 /w AC setup. I bought 3ft (pre-cut) and used a little less than half of it. So, at least we know it's under 1.5ft

We use about 16.5" of stainless line before adding fittings.

I just dealt with one of your stainless drain hoses and if we had been able to get another fitting, I would have cut about 3" off of it.

The best way to find out what length you need is to use a old garden hose,simply cut the garden hose to the length you need and that will give you the exact length of SS line.

I have a T28 on an AVO manifold (similar orientation to FM's) with oil drain pointing straight down. The only way I could connect things was with 2 45* swivel hose fittings and an NPT-AN adapter at the oil pan. Ended up only using about 10" of the 36" Russell braided hose.
