If you look at

You will see what I did. I changed the tee to one with a npt pipe thread and then used a fumoto quick drain. The details are in my kit log and I think it will work well...

What thread sealant did you use on the tee-to-sump NPT threads?

Default Sealant

I used Loctite 567. Longer cure time for adjustment, high temp, and not affected by petroleum products...

Talk to Tom @ tsflightlines. He supplied a fitting that connects to the t-nut so I can screw quickdrain on

Default Replacement Tee

The Tee I used was a standard hydraulic fitting that has one male 1/2" NPT and two female 1/2" NPT ports. Cost was about $6...

Default Oil screen fitting

I am helping another RV-10 builder who has a BPE IO-540 with cold air induction and I am trying to connect the 10D oil line from the T fitting to the rear of the crankcase.

The problem is that the elbow fitting is 180 degrees out once I torque up the fitting for the 10 D hose ( this elbow is a custom elbow that holds the oil screen supplied by BPE)

Can anyone help with another fitting idea or option to clock this fitting in the correct orientation?

Do all BPE engines with Cold Air Induction have this challenge ?

(edit : I have since resolved the clocking issue,but as this is a serviceable item,the action of removing and re-clocking an NPT fitting on a regular basis is not very desirable option )


It is going to be a ‘royal pain' to service this filter screen .

I didn't know there was an oilscreen behind that elbow! You are correct that it will be a witch (with a capital "B") to service that screen...

That looks like a nice way to get around the problem of adding a quick-drain valve to the 10D fitting. It turns out that Saf Air now makes an adapter for the 10D fitting but it's hard to find on their web site. Call Bob at Saf Air and he can guide you to the right parts. Note: They are only available from Saf Air right now.

WE talked to Allen Barrett at OSH about making a hose and conversion fitting for this. Honestly, came up with an idea, just havent put things together for Allen to test it. Life and business got in the way, but its on the list of things to do.
