Has anyone on here fitted braided hosing and dash fittings to the block on a CVH?

Mine currently has the standard setup but I want to upgrade it. The union that the hose is clipped to is just pushed into the block so is the only way to fit a dash fitting to tap a thread into the block? I'm not doing that now if that's the only way, maybe if I strip the engine in the future

Oil switch as I recall is 1/4inch x18 npt.
( check - I'm not at home to verify it )

So you should be able to get fittings for that.

You'd need to tap the block as you say, not that I can see the point of it. Can get a proper samco replacement for the drain hose and just put it on the pressed in fitting for £20 and that'll last a couple of decades easily.

Yeah that's what I'll do then, wasn't sure if there was an easy way to do it, but yeah as you say it's pointless! I like the look of braided lines and dash fittings, cheers
