Man, you read my mind and now it's not a secret anymore!! I have 2 extra dipstick tubes I can play with and a parts car to see if something would work.

if you are worried about the tube being big enough, look how small the feed line is, I'm sure the tube would be fine.

talk about over engineering, a small piece of 5/16 fuel line and two spiral clamps will hold it in place.




as far as the tube being used for the return....

if this is your oil flow at idle with an restrictor on a -3an line:


there's no chance in hell I'd do that.
