Yup, that's what Allen said. It seems that when you use a horizontal injection system there is no pick up for the oil so they install a Tee fitting then a B nut for the oil drain.

It's a bit of a problem holding the Tee while breaking the B nut loose. I was told that someone makes a quick drain fitting that will work with the Tee?

BTW, a shout out to Barret: They saw my post and figured I'd be calling. Good to know they follow VAF!
