280zx RB20 Oil Return (From turbo)

Recommended Posts

I am running a left hand drive 280zx, and trying to mount my RB20det. I have almost everything done, except the oil return from the turbo.


My problem is, i can not drop the engine in 100% without the return hose resting on my steering column, which in turn, will wear down in no time unless i do something.


Has anyone run into this? I cant find anything, and the last thing i want to do is pull the oil pan off to make a new inlet from the turbo.. but that seems like my only option.


Anyone else with LHD?

ugly but effective (no offense intended), props for the ingenuity....keep us updated as to whether or not the 3/4NPT leaks with the 3/4BSPT threads...


None taken. I just hope nothing leaks. I'll try and get a solid pipe welded/built soon, and don't plan on running it very much/hard until i can find out that it does in fact hold, till i can get the metal pipe done.
