Re: Oil return tubes

Maybe you could have a machinist help you produce return oil tubes like the ones in my picture.  It's been awhile since I flew a VW so I can't remember how they are configured.  My VW didn't like me very much so I am in awe of you expertise!

Looks good Bruce. I'll be redoing the pushrod tubes on the Remaster for my annual. Mine leak a bit too...... I hate oil leaks.

I installed the port oil return tubes several months ago and just recently fixed an oil seep around the left front cylinder base thru bolts and was bragging about how I don’t have any oil on the belly of my TrQ 200.
Then I noticed the starboard side of the belly started to have a small stream of oil on it.  So I pulled the cowl and the older model oil return tubes were seeping a bit.
So today I replaced the last 4 oil return tubes on the starboard side.  Hoping for the best.
In the mean time while I have the exhaust off on the starboard side I took it into a welder to weld little bumps on the pipe inside the cockpit heat muff to make more heat inside the cockpit.  Hoping to get it back in the air next week and see how everything works out!
Stay tuned!
