Motor angle question

Postby Dank240 » Mon Apr 09, 2018 2:42 pm

Hello fellow ka enthusiests.
I come with a somewhat basic question for which i know not the consequence.

So as we all know the ka24de sits a bit cocked to the right in iur 240s. Now i have installed a bung as oer ALOT of what i see is done on the interweb. Which after installing had me question it and now ive confirmed my fears.
The bung being welded to the exhaust side of the pan on a 90* angle to the pan immediately makes the drain back grade. And its not like its vented so she just glugs down at a fairly insufficient rate.

Ive proven this by installing a clear drain tube and monitoring it.

So aside from relocating the drain bung do the back half of the pan ad i will do in the future. I am curious if i were to shim the motor a little more square by about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch. What can i potentially be f#%k!ng up? I am just a lonely plumber in this automotive game we play and am learning all the time. So please enlighten me!
