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 .
