A65, Installing and after market sump plate with drain plug but the hole in the filter screen plate will not align with the oil return pick up pipe. What is the fix?

Give the pipe a few light taps in the direction(s) it needs to go.

Turn it over. It will fit either way up, but only Align in 1 of 8 positions

No surprise here. I never had any sump filter screen with a hole which lined up without a bit of fiddling. Got a few torn ones to show for it.

Hmm, I recently picked up a SRM with screen and it fit perfectly for me, first try.

However, the bolts were too long and were bottoming out so I had to shorten them. (It's always something)

Sump screens for A65 and for Singles have a different location for the hole. Furthermore, on one of the aluminum aftermarket sumps I have, you cannot put the screen in the proper way because the raised rim needs to be down and the sump is not relieved for the rim. I had to mill a recess in the sump to get it to fit.

Since selling many of the SRM filters and replacement screens, I have been told by some of my customers that the screens do not have the correct hole location

-Yes singles are different from twins

I have over 10 A65 cases here at the shop, 2 of them do not line up..

I have always been under the assumption that some where "one off", not sure if that is true, but seems that way

Cheers

It all depends on the positioning of the oil tube that the factory did. They are not all in the exact same position. In all cases turning the screen over did not align it. I had to move the hole in the screen using JB Weld.
