Thank you, I appreciate the comment. I was suspecting an oil galley, that is promising. Which pressure sender are you going with? Obtaining the oil feed and drain lines have been a battle. Turns out the first feed line I got was an -AN 5, I asked a local shop to make is shorter for me, he ended up cutting the line, and not being able to find the correct part and ended up making me a new one. I have been told my the local hydraulic shop that they could braise new stainless steel braided line onto my old solid steel drain line that came with the turbo, but after looking at Michael's (digital corpus) issues with his frankendrain line, I think I will just have them build me one with the proper ends. I have the car scheduled to get painted in a few months, however, I am hesitant with getting the body pained first. I NEED to get the undercarriage needle scaled and redone and I would like to get the engine bay painted first, just because it makes sense. I can drop the motor into the fresh bay and save up for body painting down the road. I have the needle scaler, just not the rotisserie to flip the car on its side nor the air tank that will handle the scaler. So I need to see if I can call around or look on CL or something.
