It pisses oil everywhere from the turbo oil drain tube
Can I just claw hammer the MF into place? Or is there some special trick to this one, Zapper?

Don't know a darned thing about the '85 cars.

But if it uses a similar drain tube like the '87 cars you need a thick GM gasket on there.

But there is a gasket on there! A big black one, too! And the tube *looked* like it went into the hole all the way. Hey! Can I silicone the sh!t out of it

Mike, are you talking about the flex tube that goes to the gromet? Where is it leaking? The gasket? Or possible hole in tube?

Yeah, it's the flex tube that goes to the grommet. But I can't tell where it's leaking from, I think the tube isn't seated properly. How deep is it supposed to go in?

If it isn't seated into the grommet properly in the intake just take a long screw driver and gently tap it into place. That's what I did on Dave's car and it doesn't leak.

The bottom part (the part not ribbed) needs to go all the way in. Be careful with sharp objects around the tube, it's easy to punch a hole in it (guess how I know). I climbed on top of the engine, used a bright flashlight so I could see what was going on, and manipulated it down in there. However you choose to do it, I have always found it to be a Royal PITA.

The above is only my opinion.

Fine Nick, just fine
