46-20 Oil Fitting replacement

The Rotax comes with a banjo bolt & hose nipple style drain for the oil/foam effluent from the engine.  The Book calls for it to be removed and replaced with a straight nipple instead.  I didn’t make too much of a mess with the ~ pint of oil that was waiting to come out of the hole while I tried to change things.  I also didn’t realize that I could re-use the yellow cap until most of the mess was already made.  Lastly, I don’t have a deep 3/4” socket.  I torqued it using my fish scale and known-length wrench.

Oh, by the way;  this completes the chapter on engine installation.  On to the accessories!
