I have decided to place my thermostat in the front trunk. I think it is easier for me to do that. I am routing the oil lines back to the engine compartment. Here are a few pics of my current set up on my 3.2. I could use some help plumbing the new oil lines back to the engine and oil tank. Can you tell me how to connect the new oil lines to the current oil lines please.
Here is the line from the bottom of engine to the oil tank.Attached Image

Here is the oil line from the tank. I am not sure where it goes.Attached Image

Here is another picture of this line that has the oil removal plug. Attached Image

I didn't picture the other oil line on top of the oil tank that I thinks goes to the cooler on the engine.

So I am looking if I can use any of these lines in conjunction with the two oil lines coming back to the engine compartment on the drivers side.

Thanks,
Buck

What line are you using to go to the front? Less fittings the better.
Engine to Thermostat, thermostat to tank. The line from tank to pump stays.

Oh, and be prepared to get a lot you didn't ask about...

Its a bit hard to see the big picture from your pics. It’s good to sketch the layout on a piece of paper noting line size (diameter), fitting, direction, etc.

Your oil removal plug is really close to the ground.

Your oil removal plug is really close to the ground.

I have one like that but the plug is parallel to the ground. The loop is still the lowest spot so it drains without the plug pointing down. It’s easy to adjust the angle just by loosening the fittings.

Are you asking what line connects to the oil cooler???

If so basically you split the scavange line in half. One have connects to the front oil cooler and one half connects to the return portion that gets plumbed backed to scavange return into the tank.

the one with the drain T is the direct supply to the engine...stays as is....

braided line running along fire wall is the return line to oil tank.. after it goes thru motor....hot
that line now needs too be routed to one of the hard lines...
The other hard line need a hose to go back to the tank...


Question...what is in the heat wrap by the oil line,,by the fire wall ? fuel lines ?

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/agree.gif) The pictured line with the drain cap extends from the bottom of the tank
to the fitting on the bottom of the engine mounted oil cooler.
Thermostats fit inline to the plumbing that extends from the right side of
the engine to the fitting on the engine side of the tank.
Ben used a picture of my thermostat plumbing. I used a 911 thermo......not a common choice......there are simpler ways to get a working system.
Thanks Ben. Nice to know you noticed.

It is actually heat wrap over the e-brake. Can't tell you why this was done.
