oil sump return line routing question for '46 and earlier oil pumps
I'm not certain which way the loop on the line from sump valve to oil pump is supposed to go on my '46 Chief pump.... loop to the front or loop to the rear? I've looked at many photos and "by gawd" you can find that line installed both ways! I can make it fit either way, but if I put the loop forward it's in the way of the cam case breather tube routing, and if I put the loop rearwards it interferes with the exhaust header. I will say that most examples I've seen have the loop going forwards, and if I go that route then does the cam case breather tube go underneath the oil sump line?
(p.s. I'd post a photo or two but my computer crashed and I'm reconstructing the files)
