I totally forgot about Jason's website! Thank you for the reminder. I really like the oil cooler drain setup he has assembled. He is a very clever guy!

I am not a fan of mounting anything to the engine truss like he did, as typically adel clamps don't age well and slip around over time, especially in oily environments and to have a hefty oil cooler attached to it would be asking for trouble down the road. Besides, I have already installed my RV-10 firewall mounted setup and am proceeding in that direction. However, I am considering Jason's methods for the SCAT tube and butterfly valve!

Thanks again for the heads up!
