Default help and advice to make nice oil drain

When I installed my kit, i tapped the pan and fitted a bung\pipe so that i could slip the stock greddy hose on to the oil pan. By using about 1\3 of the following hose, I got a well functioning oil drain.

However, now the engine is out of the car and I am getting a new (used) oil pan to make a real good drain that does not leak or becomes crappy by the heat from the mani.

This is the point where I need some help and advice. Since I am from Norway I have to order steel braided lines and the other things from the US and I do not have a clue about inches, AN fittings etc....

I need suggestions on how to make a perfect oil drain. I have the pan out, and tig welding is possible.

Can anyone give me a list of what to order and from where to get things to fit properly? (maybe from summit racing??) What are you guys recomending?

I dont want a 80% solution since the car is in the garage for the winter and I have plenty of time to take some good advice and work...

I would but i don't remember my specs but i think for my turbo placement the hose was somewhere around 1.5 ft and i used a 5/8's tap with a an 4 fitting but dont qoute me on that. Ultimatley figure out the lenght from the greddy hose, and see what you can get as far as taps etc.

Use of button + Greddy Oil Drain = the following information:

https://www.miataturbo.net/prefabbed-turbo-kits-3/one-more-oil-drain-line-question-11867/
https://www.miataturbo.net/prefabbed-turbo-kits-3/need-some-greddy-oil-lines-3821/

To make a long story short:

Buy part number TK139 from this link: http://www.jgsturbo.com/trboil.html

That will bolt to the bottom of your turbo, and give you a 1/2-NPT female fitting.

For the rest, I'm going to give links to parts in the ANPlumbing catalog. Many different manufacturers make similar parts, and you can purchase them from many different distributors, however I find this most convenient.

Go to this page and buy part number 981688. http://www.anplumbing.com/shop/index...&dept=Aluminum Install this into the fitting that you bolted onto the turbo above.


Go to this page and buy part number UP981608. http://www.anplumbing.com/shop/index...&dept=Unplated Drill and tap a 3/8" NPT hole in your oil pan, thread this fitting it, and then TIG weld it into place.

Go to this page and buy two feet (qty 2) of part 300008. http://www.anplumbing.com/shop/index...dept=Auto-Flex

Go to this page and buy one of 300108 and one of 309108.

Fit the turbo onto the engine. Measure the exact length of hose you will need, and cut it using a chop saw or metal-cutting band saw. Assemble the hose ends onto it, then install onto the engine. The 90 fitting goes at the bottom. Note, this assumed you don't have air-conditioning.

Some pictures of the finished product:






Is this sufficient for you?

I started mine today, pan off. I know it's not necessary but as long as I had the engine out, why not?

For the pan removal - there is a dowel pin on the right side of cyl 4. Makes it a PITA to remove pan. Other than that, 10mm bolts, undo 'em. Try not to pry between the baffle and engine block.

spot I drilled:

tapped:

put a little JB Weld on the fitting for good measure

Can't find my stock little oil return cover, so I made this:

out of a little hose and the cover from the ATP 45* fitting. It's glued together real good.. so it'll at least temporarily serve as my cover.

Finished the return!

Glad to see the chain, bolt, big washer method worked well for you.

Indeed, thanks for the idea! It worked pretty well once I got the right bolts.

One suggestion I'd make is to get rid of the spring clamp on the lower hose. but that's just me, I don't trust them as i've seen them fail and get weak after awhile.

What is that angled fitting going into your pan called? I looked for days when rigging up my drain but didn't find anything like that. Or do you know where I can order one? I'm also curious about clocking the turbo but I'm gonna go see if I can find anything on it first.

It can be had from ATPturbo, it's a 45* 1/2" NPT - 5/8 hose barb fitting.
