Dart update: Oil drain line

Miller electric has a trade show booth that gives you the idea that any idiot can weld. Here's what happens when any idiot tries.

Oh well - at least I didn't burn through the oil pan. I had just taken off the oil pan to add a mounting bung for an AN line (just a cheapie I bought off eBay) to let the oil drain back into the pan instead of a tapped hole in the block.

Pulling the oil pan was a bit of a pain, mostly because of a stubborn center link. Broke the idler arm trying to get it off. At least those still are available new - and not that expensive, either.

Here's another Dart work in progress picture showing the bracket I made, holding up the turbo. The welds on that one aren't quite as bad.
