Clifford, I posted a pic of the original turbo drain setup on my engine as it was supposed to be installed in the M110 Howitzer.  The turbo drain output on the turbo housing is a 2" long smooth tube stub, you are going to have to put a hose on it if only to couple to the metal tube extension.  I don't know how else to do it.  Now you have me all worried  Shocked

The original drain tube location was into the accessory cover that was where a power steering pump would be on an MCI, the lower left-most drive position.

looking forward to following that finishing!  My experience is that when you are 90% done you are half way there!
