This?

Specter sells one too, but this one is a lot cleaner design. You can make it too, but I needed one FAST, without a lot of fiddling around looking for metric fittings... Ain't cheap, especially if you have it sent next-day air :eek: !

SOR.com sells a ready-made kit(priced nice and high...about $60 as I recall) or you can make one for pennies...do a search on this site. I bought the Specter one 'cause I'm lazy and it saved me from multiple trips to my local[lousy]hardware stores.
P.S. If you get the Specter kit pick up a couple of oil drain washers 'cause the ones that come on the kit are no good.

I went to local hydrolic hose shop...got 2 each, 90 degree barb fittings that fit the thread (brought a plug with me for sizing) and about 16 inches of hyd hose...$23.
About 20 min to screwing , cut & push hose on barbs...done...

I bought the MAF oil return kit. It looks really simple to build, but I did not want to spend the time to search for the right fittings. So far it seems to be doing a good job.

What is the advantage of doing this? Some one mentioned it not being stinky anymore...what kinda smell are you talkin about...what does it smell like.
Thanks, Chuck

I don't know what the "stink" reference is to, but the advantage of doing this is that the oil thats pumped into the transfer gets returned to the tranny, where it belongs.
