  • rear main bearing oil tube thread

    The rear main bearing has a threaded 1/2 in diameter hole where an oil return flow tube is screwed in. This tube channels oil back to the pan rather than allowing it to flow back into the flywheel, creating an oil leak. What is the thread type for this..seems very fin threaded, possibly size 32 threads?

      Isn't that for Model A and Model B. I have a 1933 early v8, and the thread into the main cap is 1/2, and the tube is 1/2 diameter S shaped with an end ball?
