Re: oil return line

I have just used half a -10 steel hydraulic fitting.

you can also buy steel weld bungs from speedwaymotors.com for pretty reasonable.

you could also weld half a pipe coupler there.

or weld on a stub of just tube and use a hose clamp on it....

just make sure it is large enough and has no low spots

Re: Dull knocking

does it go away once warmed up? my 4.3L in my truck (pulled at 180K) and th replacement 350 I put in it (honed and re-ring a surface rusted bore) both knock a little when cold. Just a loose fit on the piston until they warm up and expand. if it knocks the whole time I would be a little worried though.
