I meant if you had just the brass fitting, would that open a hole, or is it a valve itself, so you can remove the second fitting without losing your oil?

No, it'* straight through. I'm dumping the quick-disconnect for a straight capped fitting. Simpler, shorter, but I'll need two wrenches to drain it.

Not much should leak out after pulling the cap if the upper plug is still in place. But if you remove that 45° fitting, it'll dump. It'* a much larger diameter.

This series of fittings also will act as a 'debris trap' of sorts as the particulates settle after turning the car off.

Another BC innovation.
....and we saw it here first.
Way to go Bill.

Small correction with the blower oil temps. My Series II usually runs 160F but at Woodburn I was measuring 180F on the Series 1 blowers. I have seen mine rise as high as 200F under non ice down conditions in the hot summer days.

It should be noted that this mod does carry a small amount of risk. Murphy'* law...you know what I mean.

I'm using Nosedrive sealant. It holds the oil in already. I've also dumped the quick-release fitting for a hard mechanical cap that is good to the melting point of 316 stainless.

Thanks for the update on temps, Paul. I'm glad I switched directions.

Apply red gasket maker (nosedrive sealant) to each fitting. Tighten well.

Bake at 150° in oven for 30 minutes to cure before filling and installing.

Serves 6.
