    Default Chain to Belt Oil Line Routing

    Converting a 71 FL that had an FX primary on it to an open belt. Just had a quick question about the oil line configuration before I try to start the thing. I have:

    1) eliminated the Vent line to the primary by getting rid of the 'T' and running a solid line (number 4)
    2) cut and plugged the front chain oiler line (number 6)
    3) capped the Rear chain oiler line (number 7)

    My question is on the Primary housing return line (number 8). Can I just cut and cap that line as well or will that have an adverse affect on the oil pump as there will not be oil returning through that passage?Click image for larger version.

    After/market makes what they call a Belt Drive Oil Pump end cover that cleans up all the hoses and barbs for both chain oilers....



    If your running a sealed wet chain primary divorced from the motor would also be the same as a Belt....

    Yes you can cap #8 without negative repercussions. It actually is a port behind the oil pump, not on the pump itself

    What about the differences in the design of the covers?



    left - aftermarket
    right - stock

    Necropost but oh well.
    Those don't look at all compatible to me. With that billet type finish the the one on the right looks like a beefy aftermarket cover as well.
