Need help identifying part please, on my 76 280C.

On the driver's side underneath the intake manifold, there's a plastic pipe about an inch wide that goes along the side of the motor from the front to the back and then it turns up.
This pipe is leaking oil from the back junction, right unto the front of the trans housing. Is this an oil return line if so, where do I get/find, how do I fix or replace (part Number?) it?

Thanks in advance.

Been a long time since I looked at one of those but I'm thinking that's an oil return line.

I agree, itīs the oil return line, I donīt know if you can find it anywhere else but the dealer. you will need to heat it on each end to soften it enough to install. Itīs hard plastic, so use a hair dryer.

Don't Chrome them; polish them
