Default Installing a turbo in a QD32

Hi all, Just thought I would start a build/help me Thread for installing a turbo on a QD32. I would like to get some photos of the oil feed and return spots on the block if anyone has done this and kept pictures.

From what I can find on the "Denco Kit Fitting Instructions" there are already two hole that just need fittings attached. Now it is just a matter of finding them and figuring out what connectors I need to get.
Quote:
Remove oil plug from side of block on LHS in front of oil filter and
regulator assembly using 5mm Allen key. Remove larger plug just
below alternator on side of block to facilitate oil return.

Screw the 3/8 male hose tail into the large oil return hole in the block.
This thread is to be sealed with Loctite Hydraulic Sealant 569. Again
using Loctite 569 screw the small oil feed nipple into the 1/8 BSP hole
in the cylinder block.
I will keep a photo journal of my progress and post it up here.

Ok now I have the problem of trying to figure out what metric thread will fill into a 1/8 BSP thread.
Dion or Dave would you know what kind of thread that plug I have highlighted is?
I have been searching with no luck but I think it would be an 8mm metric thread.

Check out Patrol 4x4 - Nissan Patrol Forum as the NA TD42's have the same setup.

I reckon it would be 8mm, but the Patrol guys have done it heaps more.

Thanks Dave, Just waiting on registration to the forum so I can view the pictures.

From what I can find this looks like the oil return plug. (I really hope it isn't, B!tch of a spot)

i just finished my turbo conversion on my qd32 so i used the port thats actually on the right of the one you circled. and for drain back if you look behind your oil filter you will find a 1/2 bsp port that is factory drain back, i have all the pirtek part numbers some where will put em up tomorrow for you. i used a stainless teflon hose in 1/8 with jic ends
any question just shoot me a pm and i will get back to you\cheers

Cheers Brent, pictures and a parts list would be awesome.
Just have to get the lines and exhaust sorted out and will start the fitting.
