Default Front cover oil drain with truck front accessories

Looking at doin the turbo drain to my front timing cover but the balancer is pretty big. I've seen it done on camaros but no pictures on a truck. I'm sure someone has done this but pics would be nice.

Thanks, Nick

I wouldn't waste your time with the front cover. Install them in the front of the oil pan. Then you will have clearence with the accessory bracket on the driver's side. In fact, every twin setup should be setup this way. Easy access and great clearence.

I attached a pic of my setup. The fittings are welded in from inside the oil pan. I have 1 inch of clearence behind the balancer.
