the oil lines are pre-formed and only fit one way.

the fittings on the S&S oil pump are the same as the OEM pump.

there are 3 lines......the vent is above the oil pump on the crankcase, the supply is on the outer cover of the oil pump and the return is the line from the oil filter.

there should be 3 fittings on the transmission/oil pan assembly.

let me know if you need more help.

Not using stock oil lines the old ones were trashed so Im replacing them with stainless braided There is a top outlet on the S&S pump as well as a bottom Im just guessing but is the bottom from the tranny/tank go to the bottom out of the pump? ie the supply side?
