Oil lines reversed?
« on: September 24, 2015, 12:13:13 pm »
Looked at a car, fairly reasonably priced. Owner had just put a new engine in it and decided to get out of racing. Noticed the oil lines are hooked up in reverse of what I understand to be the correct order....  The center line which is usually return from cooler was hooked up to the oil filter, and the 'out'  line was run to the cooler.  Is this catastrophic?    Reportedly has raced once with new engine, seems to run fine.  I don't even want to make an offer if the engine is likely cooked.
