We're all familiar with the oil funnel and tube that takes oil to the front of the engine.




But there's also an accessory version that's advertised to double the amount of oil carried to the front. I don't see any way for it to fit. Does anybody have a picture of one installed? I'd like to see how it's supposed to go.

Steve, they fit under the horshoes in the pan, the funnel goes up next to the mag ring, you have to kind of fit it in the proper position.
I had one in my 24 until I put a Scat crank in and there is not enough room.

Steve, Rick is exactly right, i have a pic of the newer version the vendors now sell, hope it helps. Its in the background, not exactly a great pic, but i think you can get the idea.

I have one just like yours on my '26. It runs along the right side of the pan. The strip with the holes goes under the inspection cover hold down strips. I forget what they are called. I'll get you some pictures tomorrow as my motor is tore down right now. PK

I have both of the Accessory internal oil lines in my coupe and was able to install them while the engine was in the car. I am quite happy with them.

Stop experimenting Steve. You just seem to get into trouble. I don't want to see you in a couple of weeks pulling bits of that beat up junk out of the oil you just drained from your second going on third engine tear down.

And the knock you may develop is from the rods hitting that particular accessory inside oil line...

Found that to be the culprit on a couple cars I've worked on...

I took apart a '27 engine that had two accessory inside oil lines that had been making contact with the crank. Good way to circulate metal through the engine. I don't see the point, the stock big funnel line does fine.

I have an extra oil line in my '25 Coupe that may dad put in the engine in 1965 when we bought the car. He learned to do this growing up in western Kansas and it still working fine, no problems. He had good attention to detail.
