I guess I am out of luck...does everyone who fogets or missing the lower tube drop their oil pan for a fix ?
Remove the tube, and take the piece of 5/16" (or whatever's closest) hard line, put a flare on one end, and drop it into the same place the tube goes. The flare will keep it from falling through, then reinstall the tube.
IIRC, the bottom tube is 6"-7" long- I think I have one in the shop- I'll check it and add an edit.
