Default Re: Rear Main Bearing Oil Behavior

When I bought my coupe the engine had been rebuilt with only 100 miles on it. The oil leak from the bell housing was very bad. I dropped the pan and discovered the drain tube was a pipe nipple that was too short to reach the oil level. I replaced it with the proper drain tube and the leak stopped. All of the mathematics above are a little beyond me, but I got the correct result. I believe the drain tube needs to be in the oil. John
